Israel has fully reopened the Gaza border crossings, Kerem Shalom and Erez crossings, that were closed following militant rocket fire during President Barack Obama’s visit to the region last week.

The attack prompted Israel to close its only border crossing for commercial goods with the coastal territory, and to restrict its only civilian crossing to humanitarian cases only.

It also limited the stretch of the sea where Gaza fishermen were allowed to fish. The Israeli military said it has now reopened the commercial crossing and is allowing Palestinians with entry permits to cross into Israel through the civilian crossing, but the fishing restrictions are still in place.

As many as 360 trucks carrying food, construction materials for international-funded programs along with other commercial goods started to enter the Gaza side of the Kerem Shalom crossing point.
