Palestinian farmers pick strawberries in the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Lahia on Nov. 28,2010. Israel granted special approval for the export of a small amount of Palestinian Strawberries 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 Islamic Hamas party took control of the impoverished strip.
