Valentine Reprieve: Israel Lifts Gaza Export Ban For Flowers

All you need is love . . . to convince Israel to partially lift its embargo on exports leaving Gaza. Israel has granted permission for 25,000 flowers grown in Gaza to be sent to Europe in time for Valentine's Day.

Thanks to a joint request made by Palestinian farmers and the Dutch government, the carnations will be bought by lovers, and not fed to the sheep like the rest of the embargoed flowers.

Since 2007 only humanitarian aid and a few other goods have been able to leave and enter Gaza. Israel shut off access in response to attacks and in an attempt to put pressure on Hamas. Until the a permanent deal is made to lift the blockade, only 25,000 flowers will escape for now.
