Israel reopens Gaza crossing for Palestinian laborers after sealing it over rising tensions

  • Following weeks of violent protests, Israel reopened the Erez crossing, allowing thousands of Palestinian laborers to enter the country for work. The crossing had been sealed after demonstrations involving explosives, rocks, and incendiary balloons.
  • COGAT, the Israeli defense body responsible for Palestinian civilian affairs, announced the reopening of the crossing while emphasizing that it would remain open if calm was maintained. This decision comes after Israel briefly closed Gaza's main cargo crossing due to the discovery of explosives in an outgoing shipment.
  • Desperate to resume their jobs in Israel, Palestinian workers wasted no time flocking to the crossing as soon as Israel made the announcement. The Erez crossing is the only pedestrian passageway out of Gaza for around 18,000 Palestinians who work in Israel.
