    In another context, Palestinian minister of agriculture Mohamed Al-Agha stressed Sunday that the farmers' right to compensation cannot be dropped by prescription, noting that the kind of assistance provided by the government in Gaza is not more than relief aid.

    This came during his visit along with a number of Palestinian lawmakers, heads of municipal councils and dignitaries to Al-Shawka border area in Rafah city to participate in a campaign to plant 1,000,000 olive trees.

    Agha also promised to plant all agricultural lands which were bulldozed or destroyed by Israel during its repeated attacks on Gaza with almond and olive trees, saying this is the least the government can do compared to the steadfastness of Gaza farmers.
