Israel allows 280 trucks into Gaza

May 31, 2011 12:07 P.M. (Updated: June 1, 2011 3:06 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel on Tuesday allowed 280 trucks of goods and aid into Gaza through the sole operating supplies terminal Kerem Shalom, Palestinian officials said.

Liaison officer Raed Fattouh said the delivery would include construction materials for UNRWA and USAID projects as well as 20 new cars.

Egypt on Saturday permanently reopened its Rafah border crossing into Gaza allowing the free movement of people for the first time in four years.

But the terminal does not have the infrastructure to transfer goods into the coastal enclave, home to over 1.6 million people.

Israel controls all other crossings into Gaza and maintains an illegal naval blockade on the Strip's coastline.
