Israel Allows Goods into Gaza


gaza-aidCOGAT – the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories – announced Monday that people, goods and construction materials continue to cross through to Gaza, despite rockets launched at Israeli civilians and at the crossings themselves.

COGAT noted that since Thursday, the terror organizations have launched more than 147 rockets, mortar shells and Grad missiles towards the Israeli civilian population. During these attacks, one Israeli was killed and 13 others were injured, including one severely. 


These attacks began after a series of terror attacks near the Egyptian border north of Eilat, in which eight Israelis were killed.


In spite of these attacks, Israel has approved the opening of the crossings between Israel and the Gaza. 


Erez Crossing:

Since the beginning of the escalation 156 people have passed through the crossing, despite the two rockets that were launched at the crossing:

100 patients and companions exited for medical treatment in Israel

56 foreign international organization staff members crossed though the crossing (28 entered Israel and 19 exited to Gaza)


Kerem Shalom Crossing

The crossing operated, despite a rocket launched at it yesterday.  

The crossing operated for a few hours, under threat, for the transfer of 80 truckloads of goods (2,554 tons) and 46 tons of cooking gas:

  • 13 truckloads of fruits and vegetables
  • 5 truckloads of meat and fish.
  • 3 truckloads of dairy products
  • 23 truckloads of mixed grain for animal feed
  • 9 truckloads of mixed food products
  • UNRWA transferred 21 truckloads of construction materials and 6 truckloads of flour.

  1. Somewhere I read that insanity is doing the same thing over again expecting different results. Why does Israel act so foolish and weak? Has it curried ANY favor from the enemy at all?

  2. More proof of the magnanimity of the State of Israel. The sefirot must be the guiding tool for policy decisions. The current GDP of the areas of Israel, Judea and Samaria/The West Bank, Gaza, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt and Saudi Arabia is approximately $1.6 trillion. This region can grow by at least 5% p.a. over the coming 38 years. If the right command structure is put in place the Holy Land will be a platform of peace, stability and prosperity. The whole world will benefit from this centre of unfolding potential. This is not blue sky thinking. There are concrete benefits to the correct plan and vision prevailing. You can push away and stop the evil aspects of a neighbour’s character whilst still trying to help them improve their situation. Black and white thinking is the hallmark of fools.

  3. #3, that is a sweet generalization, and I wish it could be the case. But, sadly, you do not see the trees for the forest. Not everyone is a reflection of you. Not everyone shares your balance of niceness and rudeness. Lions eat their prey. Arabs are designed to do the same; whether it’s their own kind (shiite versus sunni versus black muslim) or Jews. You are perfectly welcome to go into the belly of the beast and be as nice as you want. Walk the talk, my friend!
