Israel to reopen Gaza crossings, expand fishing zone as calm sticks

Israel will reopen the Erez and Kerem Shalom crossings with the Gaza Strip on Thursday morning unless violence resumes, the Defense Ministry’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories says.

The fishing zone will also be expanded to 15 nautical miles, the military says.

The announcement comes after a flareup in violence earlier this week saw 90 rockets fired at Israel by Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip.
