This morning, Palestinian terrorists fired three mortars on the Palestinian side of the Kerem Shalom crossing. The mortars struck a truck and a van on their way to deliver goods to the people of Gaza. Following the shooting, activity at the crossing was suspended for just a few minutes. After evaluating the situation, it was decided to continue operations at the crossing, where goods continue to be transferred from Israel into the Gaza Strip.
Yesterday, over 180 trucks of goods were transferred from Israel to Gaza. The IDF (Zahal) will continue to act in order to prevent terrorist attacks from the Gaza Strip. At the same time, the Israel Defense Forces will continue to distinguish between the terrorist organizations and the civilian population.
Trucks with goods and supplies routinely enter the Gaza Strip from Israel at the Kerem Shalom border crossing.
The IDF (Zahal) and the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) will continue to abide by their commitments to transfer goods through the Kerem Shalom crossing to the people of Gaza in an efficient and secure manner.
