The Erez Crossing with the Gaza Strip will reopen tomorrow, the military’s liaison to the Palestinians says.

The pedestrian crossing between Israel and the coastal enclave was shuttered over recent rocket attacks on southern Israel.

With it reopening, some 12,000 Palestinians with work permits can again enter Israel.

The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories says the move depends on “maintained security stability in the region.”
