Food security in Palestine

"Food prices in Palestine have been dramatically affected by the increase of the global food prices over the last two years. But while the situation is coming back to normality in most of the other developed countries, in Developing Countries in general, and in the Palestinian Occupied Territories, the food prices of domestic production remain too high as a consequence of the high “transaction costs” resulting from the Occupation and from the policies described above (restriction of movement or waiting at the check points)."
