New York - The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) praises Minister Shimon Peres’ efforts to expedite and reduce the dangers of the passing of commercial cargo from Gaza into Israel. He stated that eliminating the congestion by improving inspections at Gaza crossing points is of tantamount importance toward improving life in the area and security for Israelis. The Israel National News Service (Arutz 7) reported that at the World Economic Summit in Davos, Peres announced that he reached an “understanding” with World Bank officials toward the funding of state of the art security equipment that permits expeditious inspection and clearance of items through crossing points. The cost will be $140 million. He also said he would like to provide train service from Gaza to the Port of Ashdod, which would replace the large number of trucks that transport goods to Ashdod, Israel.
