Kerem Shalom open Friday

Aug. 15, 2014 12:55 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 17, 2014 9:44 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities said that the Kerem Shalom crossing would be opened on Friday in order to allow the entrance of "limited quantities" of supplies into the Gaza Strip.

The crossings committee of the Palestinian Ministry of the Interior said in a statement that 30 trucks of UNRWA humanitarian supplies would be entering the Gaza Strip through the crossing, the only way for goods to legally enter Gaza.

The statement added that "limited quantities" of fuel and cooking gas would also enter on Friday.

The Kerem Shalom crossing is usually closed on Fridays and Saturdays, but in recent weeks Israeli authorities have kept it open to allow the transfer of small amounts of humanitarian supplies.

Gaza is currently experiencing one of its worst humanitarian crises in years amid a five-week Israeli assault by land, air, and sea that has killed nearly 2,000 people, destroyed or severely damaged the homes of around 100,000, and caused massive damage to infrastructure.

Israel has imposed a siege on the Gaza Strip for the last eight years that has completely limited all imports and exports into the Strip and crippled the tiny coastal enclave's economy.
