Israel will begin Sunday allowing increased shipments of goods and commodities into the Gaza Strip, Israeli radio reported. According to the radio, shipments will increase by 30 percent and that these increased quantities, involving food items and medicines, will enter through the Sufa commercial crossing in southern Gaza. Currently, Israel will not reopen other Gaza crossings and only the Sufa crossing will be reopened. Last Thursday, Israel and Palestinians began implementing an Egyptian-mediated truce deal, which stipulates halting the firing of homemade shells onto nearby Israeli towns and gradual reopening of Gaza's crossings, closed since June of 2007.
