Israel to open Erez Crossing to Gaza for commerce

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon announced that Israel will reopen the Erez crossing, which connects Gaza and Israel, to commercial traffic.

 

However, he did not give a date for the reopening of the Erez Crossing in the north of the territory, saying only that this “will not happen tomorrow or the day after.”

 

Erez is currently only used for pedestrian traffic, with vehicles unable to traverse the crossing.

 

There is currently only one crossing point, the Shalom crossing, into Gaza for trucks. The Erez crossing has been closed to commercial traffic since 2000.

 

The reopening is meant to reduce the traffic at the Shalom crossing, which is currently at around 600 trucks per day.

 

Israel controls all but one of the crossing points with Gaza — the Rafah Crossing into Egypt.
