Barak Unveils More Gestures for Gaza


Defense Minister Ehud Barak has announced new “good will gestures” for residents of Hamas-led Gaza.  The gestures were revealed Tuesday in honor of the Muslim holiday of Ramadan.

In addition, more furniture and textiles will be exported via Israel, and more Gaza merchants will be allowed to enter Israel, Judea and Samaria.
