Israel opens Gaza crossings

Some good news for once coming out of the Gaza, Following UN demands, Israel suddenly reopens Gaza crossings:
Gaza – Ma’an – Israel reopened commercial crossings into the Gaza Strip on Wednesday morning, without conditions, the Palestinian Authority told Ma’an.

The crossings had been closed in response to a deadly attack on an Israeli patrol near Gaza on Tuesday morning. One officer was killed in the attack and three others were injured, one seriously.

According to Ra’ed Fatouh, a Crossings Authority official, Israel informed the PA “that they reopened the borders in the Strip for dozens of trucks at 7:00am this morning.”

More from Haaretz on the bombing still continuing from both sides.
