A Palestinian man inspects the truck loaded with flowers and strawberries at the Rafah border crossing in the southern Gaza Strip on November 28, 2010, after Israel granted special approval for the export of a small amount of Palestinian Strawberry and flowers from the Gaza Strip to the European market. Two trucks loaded with flowers and Strawberry will be able to leave the impoverished territory over the next two weeks with European coordination. Sealed off from the outside world, Gaza's farmers are entering their fourth year of export restrictions, imposed by Israel after the Islamist Hamas party took control of the impoverished strip.
