Arabs reject Israeli shipments of clothes and shoes to Gaza!

More news from that awful "siege" of Gaza:

Israel has trucks full of clothing and shoes ready to be shipped to Gaza, but the Gaza economic minister rejected the shipments altogether. He said that they were not adequate and he demanded much more.

Apparently, it is too difficult to coordinate the sales of such items among the many shopkeepers who want to sell them, so the government would rather not have that headache.

The clothing was donated by Egypt and the PA. Palestine Today says that they are ready to send five truckfuls a day, but the Hamas government is demanding 30-50 trucks a day.
