As Protest On Gaza Border Continues, Israeli Officials Partially Open Unused Crossing
After permanently closing the main commercial crossing between Israel and the Gaza Strip two days ago, Israeli authorities allowed 10 trucks to cross into Gaza with building materials, Wednesday morning, through a crossing that has been closed for over three years.
Officials with the Palestinian Authority in Gaza say that the Kerem Shalom crossing, which was closed by Israeli forces permanently on Sunday, must be re-opened, and the 3 year siege imposed on the Gaza Strip by Israeli authorities be ended.
