Israel reopens commercial crossing with Gaza after 2-day closure

Jan. 16, 2018 12:01 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 16, 2018 1:39 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities reopened on Tuesday the commercial Karam Abu Salem (Kerem Shalom) crossing with the southern Gaza Strip, after a two-day closure.

Official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency reported that the crossing was opened on Tuesday, after Israeli forces had closed it for two days citing security reasons.

The crossing was closed following Israeli airstrikes in the area on Saturday.

The Karam Abu Salam crossing serves as the only point through which commercial and industrial goods are allowed to enter the besieged coastal enclave, which has been suffering under a decade-long Israeli blockade.
