A private international fund has agreed to pay Jewish farmers in Gaza $14 million to buy most of the hothouses they will leave behind. Representatives for the Gaza farmers signed the deal last Friday with the Economic Cooperation Foundation, the Jerusalem Post reported. The deal comes days before Israel begins evacuating the Gaza settlements.
