Israeli authorities allow new types of goods to cross into Gaza

The Israeli occupation authorities on Wednesday allowed the passage of various types of goods into the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom border crossing for the first time since the end of the last aggression about two months ago.

The director of the national economy at the Kerem Shalom border crossing, Ahmed Musallam, told Safa that the crossing is witnessing an active movement of trucks loaded with goods entering Gaza.

Musallam explained that the occupation allowed the entry of goods and commodities that were not allowed to cross since the end of the aggression, including imported clothes that were stuck, fabrics and threads, and A4 printing papers.

"The occupation also allowed the entry of wood that is used in the manufacture of furniture, charcoal, textile requirements, shoes, and some paper products," he added.

But, the occupation is still preventing entry to all electrical tools and construction materials, including cement, iron, gravel, and paint.

In addition, Musallam pointed out that before the end of the aggression, the occupation allowed the entry of between 600-700 trucks, but currently, between 400-500 is allowed to enter.
