Kerem Shalom crossing opens for Gaza exports to Ukraine


GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities opened the Kerem Shalom crossing with the Gaza Strip on Tuesday to allow a single truckload of wooden furniture to be exported to Ukraine, a Palestinian official said.

Raed Fattouh told Ma'an that 280 truckloads of humanitarian aid and commercial and agricultural goods were also allowed to enter Gaza.

He said eight truckloads of cement, 23 loads of concrete aggregates, and two loads of iron bars for construction would enter the Strip for UN-funded projects.

Additionally, fuel was to be delivered to Gaza's sole power plant. Domestic-use gas was also allowed to enter the besieged coastal enclave. more
