  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/02/israel-blocks-palestinian-agricultural-exports-jordan-200209104227779.html) reduced by 68%. (I’m a bot)

    > The Israeli military has blocked Palestinian agricultural exports through Jordan in the latest escalation of a months-long trade war that comes amid fears of renewed violence in the region over a controversial Middle East plan backed by the United States.

    > The Western-backed Palestinian Authority said Israeli forces at checkpoints blocked vegetable shipments that were on their way to be exported abroad. In a statement, the Palestinian Ministry of Agriculture said vegetable exports to Israel were worth $88m last year, comprising 68 percent of the occupied West Bank's overall vegetable exports.

    > The deputy Palestinian economic minister, Tariq Abu Laban, told the Palestinian news agency, WAFA, that the decision to ban the export of Palestinian goods was in response to the Palestinian government's decision to ban the import of Israeli calves.
