JERUSALEM: Israel reopened on Sunday its only crossing with the Gaza Strip to Palestinian workers nearly two weeks after closing it over unrest, the defense ministry said.
“Following an assessment of the security situation, it has been decided… to open Erez Crossing for passage of workers and permit holders from the Gaza Strip into Israel, beginning Sunday,” said COGAT, a unit of the Israeli defense ministry responsible for Palestinian civil affairs.
The crossing is used by 12,000 Palestinians with permits to enter Israel for work.
