Israel’s Erez border crossing with the Gaza Strip could be reopened to Palestinian laborers as soon as tomorrow, according to Army Radio.

Citing security sources, the radio station says any decision to again allow in workers from Gaza depends on continued calm. A decision is expected in the coming days.

Earlier, Israel’s military liaison to the Palestinians announced the reopening of border crossings to allow fuel and humanitarian aid into Gaza, but has continued to bar the entry of pedestrians through Erez.
