Gaza: Israel Sunday allowed the export of strawberries, herbs and cherry tomatoes from the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian official said.

The development comes after Israel and the Islamic movement of Hamas agreed on a ceasefire following their eight-day battle last month.

The consignment includes seven trucks of agricultural products destined for Europe.

The Egyptian-brokered ceasefire envisaged lifting of Israeli curbs on Gaza`s export and import, Xinhua reported.
