( The Israeli government has allowed Gaza fishermen to export their catch to Palestinians in the West Bank for the first time in seven years.

Israel eased the export restrictions it imposed on Gaza since Hamas took over governance of the coastal enclave in 2007, allowing a shipment of more than 730 kilograms.

The allowance was adopted despite the recent spate of Palestinian stabbing and vehicular terror attacks against Israelis.

Last Thursday, Israel also allowed the export of 6 tons of cucumbers from Gaza, reported i24news.
