Gaza to export flowers

AP:

Israel is relaxing its blockade of the Gaza Strip to let through 25,000 carnations headed to Europe for Valentine’s Day.

But the head of the Gaza flower growers’ association said that was “nothing” compared to the 40 million flowers a year that came out of the territory before the blockade.

The flowers will be Gaza’s first exports in a year. Israel has blockaded Gaza since Hamas militants seized control of the territory in June 2007.
