GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities decided to open the Kerem Shalom crossing on Monday to allow limited aid into the coastal enclave.

Palestinian liaison official, Raed Fattouh, said Israel would allow approximately 300 truckloads into Gaza, including 20 new cars.

Of these, 82 truckloads would bring cement and iron into the coastal enclave for projects funded by the German Development Agency and UNRWA.

Limited quantities of domestic gas will be pumped via the same crossing, Fattouh said.

On Sunday, Israeli authorities allowed 267 truckloads of goods and 137,260 kilograms of domestic gas into Gaza.
