Update on activities at the crossings in the wake of escalation

Erez crossing We watch with concern as the escalation in Gaza and in the south of Israel claims the lives of and injures civilians and damages civilian property.
We note that the Kerem Shalom crossing is closed today to passage of goods. Erez is also closed, excepting critical medical patients, foreign journalists and foreign staff of international organizations.  
Rafah Crossing is open as usual and will remain open around the clock for urgent cases.
