GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli authorities opened Gaza's sole remaining commercial crossing terminal on Wednesday, for the limited import of building materials designated to international development projects.

Palestinian liaison official, Raed Fattouh, said Kerem Shalom crossing in the southern Gaza Strip was opened for 270-280 truckloads of aid to commercial, agricultural and transport sectors.

Ten truckloads of cement were marked for a German development agency project in Sheikh I’jilin, and 19 truckloads of cement and metal, and 60 truckloads of gravel, would be delivered to US development agency projects, Fattouh said.

A limited amount of cooking gas will also be pumped through Kerem Shalom Wednesday, the official added.

Supplies permitted to enter Gaza remain well below needs, UN reports say, showing pre-siege levels of almost 3,000 truckloads of goods a week down to just over 700 in the second week of May.
