Biscuits From Gaza Feed West Bank Schoolkids

The nutritious datebars eaten by children at schools in the West Bank used to be shipped in from Egypt or even further afield.

The result is that the local economy is being supported and kids in the West Bank are eating biscuits produced by fellow Palestinians. The first convoy of datebars recently made the crossing from Gaza.
