GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – The European Union will fund expansion of Gaza’s Kerem Shalom crossing increasing its capacity to 500 truckloads per day, chief of the Palestinian borders and crossings department Nathmi Muhanna said Tuesday.

Speaking to a Ma’an, Muhanna explained that new gates, new roads would be built as well as a waiting parking near the crossing.

“Currently, about 300 truckloads of goods enter the Gaza Strip via Kerem Shalom crossing, while Israel allows exporting only two or three truckloads of local products via the same crossing.”
