According to Israel’s Channel Two, there has been an astonishing 40% decrease in trade in Israel ever since the military operation on Gaza began. “Operation Protective Edge”, the name of Israel’s “defensive” military action, began on July 7th, and since then has been unleashing an uncontrolled chaotic attack which has no only devastated Gaza, but appalled the entire world given its barbarity.
Apparently, officials at the Israeli Export Institute have been reporting an extremely noticeable decline in import and export between Palestine’s cities as they are an easy target for disaster. The South of Israel in particular (aka Palestine) being known for its agricultural land, advanced farming methods and noticeable export to the Israeli market as well as to other foreign markets, has shown to be a little problematic.
In result, the Chairman of the Haistadrut, Avi Nissenkorn, the General Organisation of Workers in the Land of Israel, has promptly asked Yair Lapid, the Finance Minister, to immediately issue directives to make up for the owners and companies in the vicinity of the Gaza Strip for “indirect” revenue losses caused by the current situation.
