A documentary produced by the Israeli Film Service in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture.
The main message of this short film is that Israeli military control is beneficial to agriculture in the Gaza Strip. Many examples of assistance provided by the Ministry of Agriculture to the locals are presented as evidence: the Ministry provides drip irrigation equipment and sprinklers to citrus orchards, that were previously wastefully irrigated; new water meters are installed in the wells that suffered from over-pumping; instructors from the Ministry explain to Palestinian farmers about greenhouses and pesticides; thanks to Israeli technologies, more vegetables and strawberries are grown in the Strip. Even a new village is established thanks to the Israeli authorities – Dahaniya.
The film features Abu Aziz, the Director General of the Ministry of Agriculture in the Gaza Strip, agronomists Muhammad Mahlawi, Kamal Al-Saeg, and Muhammad Hamdan, Abdullah Al-Agha, the head of the Vegetable Growers Association in the Strip, veterinarian Muhammad Miki, Ministry of Agriculture employees Galb Abu Sweirah and Zaid Abu Zeidah, the head of a fishing cooperative in the Strip, whose name is Rajab Al-Haisi, and Sheikh Hassan from Dahaniya.
