Israel Closes Karm Abu Salem Crossing
Israeli authorities temporarily close the Karm Abu Salem Crossing with the Gaza Strip, Palestinian Security sources reported on Friday. The border crossing will re-open on Sunday.
Raed Fattuh, the Palestinian officer who is head of the committee supervising the entry of goods into the Gaza Strip, said that Israel opened the crossing for two days only, Wednesday and Thursday to allow some food supplies and construction material to enter into Gaza.
