COGAT temporarily opens Gaza crossings to let in humanitarian aid

The Coordinator of Government Operations in the Territories has opened the Erez and Kerem Shalom crossings into Gaza for the entry of UN humanitarian aid, including medicine, food and fuel for generators.

The continued operation of the crossings will depend on whether quiet is maintained in Gaza, Channel 13 reports, adding that the IDF will likely reopen the fishing zone next week.

When Israel reopened the crossings earlier this week to let in humanitarian aid, Hamas fired mortar shells toward those bringing it, forcing the IDF to shutter the border once again.
