Saudi Arabian authorities refused on Wednesday to allow 20,000 Palestinian olive oil containers through the Jordanian-Saudi land borders for “not matching the Saudi specifications.”

Muhammad al-Barqawi, one of the Palestinian olive oil exporters, told Ma’an that the Saudi government refused to allow 15 vehicles carrying olive oil into Saudi Arabian.

Al-Barqawi said the oil was tested in the Palestinian Ministry of Agriculture laboratories before being exported and that they fit all international standards.

He said that the Saudi Arabian authorities have been holding the vehicles, carrying more than 300 tons of Palestinian olive oil, since Sunday.
