Israel will reopen the Kerem Shalom crossing with the Gaza Strip, on Wednesday, after keeping it closed for six consecutive days, according to a Palestinian official.
Nathmi Muhanna, the Palestinian Authority director of border crossings, told Ma’an News Agency, Tuesday, that Israeli officials had informed the Palestinian side that the Kerem Shalom crossing would resume operations on Wednesday.

The crossing was open Sunday and Monday, but only for fuel deliveries.

Israel shut down the crossing last Wednesday in the wake of a flare-up of violence which began when an Israeli airstrike killed three Palestinian militants in southern Gaza the day before.
