22 June, 2024 12:43

Despite the ongoing Israel’s genocide in Gaza, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Jordan and Egypt have increased exports to Jerusalem as compared to last year, CBS data revealed.

According to Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) the Egyptian exports to Israel in May 2024 amounted to $25 million, which is double that of the same period in 2023.

Egypt is one of the key mediator between Israel and Hamas in the ongoing war in Gaza.

Similarly, Jordan’s exports to Jerusalem have also seen a significant increase, rising from $32.3 million in to $35.7 million.

The surge in Jordanian exports came while the country has been witnessing pro-Palestine rallies since the eruption of the Israeli war on Gaza.

During the same duration, UAE’s exports to Israel were recorded at $242 million from last year’s $238 million.

Meanwhile, Israeli statistics showed that Turkish exports were dropped over half in 2024.

The decline came as Turkey’s trade ministry recently imposed restrictions on exports to the regime over the war in Gaza.

Still, the value of exports is higher than that of Egypt and Jordan combined as it hit $116.8 million in May 2024, down from $376.6 million in May 2023.

It is worth to mention here that Israel launched the war on Gaza on October 7 and since the start of the offensive, the Tel Aviv regime has killed at least 37,431 Palestinians and injured 85,653 more.
