Single Gaza crossing operates

Dec. 7, 2010 10:28 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 7, 2010 3:49 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Gaza's southernmost crossing, Kerem Shalom, was announced open for imports of humanitarian aid, fuel and commercial goods, in addition to the export of limited strawberries, Palestinian liaison official Raed Fattouh said Tuesday.

The second operating crossing in the north, used for the bulk transport of wheat, animal feed and construction aggregates, was closed despite warnings from UN officials about a looming wheat crisis. The crossing operates twice a week, and has done so since August 2009.

Fattouh said he was informed 160-170 truckloads of goods including three truckloads of construction material for UN-run projects would enter the coastal enclave.

Two truckloads of strawberries and flowers harvested in the Gaza Strip would be exported through the crossing, under the auspices of a Dutch-government program.

Fattouh also confirmed that limited quantities of domestic-use gas and industrial-grade diesel would be delivered into the Gaza Strip.
