The Erez Crossing with the Gaza Strip — shuttered over recent rocket attacks on southern Israel — will remain closed tomorrow, security officials say.

On Friday, Israel announced that the sole pedestrian crossing with Gaza would remain closed today, after three rockets were fired at the south.

The sanction means some 12,000 Palestinians with permits, cannot enter Israel for work. Officials are expected to reconvene again tomorrow to discuss potentially reopening it.
