17k Tons of Iraqi Dates Exported

By John Lee.

Aswat al-Iraq reports that an estimated 17.000 tons of dates were exported last month to Asian countries, and the exports are still continuing.

Before the Iran-Iraq war, about 500,000 tons of dates are typically exported annually, but damage to the date plantations resulted decreased this  figure.
