Bethlehem - Gaza -Ma'an - A slow improvement in goods flowing through Gaza crossings has been reported by both Israeli and Palestinian sources.

Forty-one truckloads of food supplies, stationary and wood will be allowed into the Gaza Strip, said the head of the office the de facto minister of economy, Hatem Iwiedah on Friday. Fruits and medical aids, he added, have not been included in the supplies allowed in.

The goods are coming into the Gaza Strip through the Sufa and Karem Shalom crossings in the south of the Gaza Strip, said Iweidah. He added that they are "partially open," and not allowing all goods through, thought the flow has after the crossings were closed for two days.

Israeli sources reported opening the two southern Gaza crossings Friday morning after closing them in response to a shell fired from the Gaza Strip into an uninhabited area of the western Negev.
