Gaza: 1 crossing operates partly

Dec. 19, 2010 11:09 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 19, 2010 1:36 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli authorities partly opened the southernmost Kerem Shalom crossing between Israel and the blockaded Gaza Strip, while the bulk goods Karni terminal in the northeast remained closed.

Liaison official Raed Fattouh said the Palestinian side was told Sunday to expect the entry of 140-150 truckloads of goods and humanitarian aid through Kerem Shalom. In addition, Israeli authorities are set to allow export of eight truckloads of strawberries and flowers, harvested in Gaza, through the same crossing.

Kerem Shalom will also see the entry of limited quantities of industrial-grade diesel and domestic-use gas into the besieged enclave, Fattouh said, while the Karni crossing will remain closed for the day.
