Despite rocket barrage, Israel keeps Gaza crossings open

Despite the continuous firring of more than 120 missiles and mortar shells towards civilian targets in southern Israel, the stoppage of studies and the disruption in the daily lives of more then million Israelis, the state of Israel has decided to open the land crossings to Gaza regularly.

Today, 200 aid trucks are entering Gaza from Kerem Shalom, including 11 trucks loaded with building materials and gravel and 40 trucks for UNRWA projects, in addition to cooking gas being pumped in.

Also three trucks are leaving Gaza filled with flowers for export to Europe.
