Israeli Forces Reopen Karam Abu Salem Crossing After Seven-Day Closure

Israeli forces reopened the Karam Abu Salem crossing following a week-long closure, permitting the entry of goods and fuel into the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian cargo access coordination committee reported that trucks carrying fuel were granted entry to replenish the power station in Gaza, which had ceased operations due to the closure causing a diesel oil shortage.

Karam Abu Salem serves as the sole commercial crossing authorised by Israeli authorities for the import of goods into Gaza.

According to an Israeli agency overseeing the crossing, aid trucks from Egypt were already undergoing security inspections at the crossing as Israel initiated the reopening process, as per Reuters. The closure had been implemented on Sunday in response to a Palestinian shelling attack that resulted in the death of four soldiers.
