Israel reopens Gaza border crossings


Al-Quds city, (Jerusalem) : Israel has opened its border crossings with the Gaza Strip after closing them once again because of Palestinian rocket fire, Reuters reported.

Israeli military spokesman Peter Lerner says the crossings opened Sunday morning and that food, fuel and cement were being sent in. He says Palestinians seeking medical
treatment are also being allowed into Israel.

Israel and Gaza militants reached a truce agreement on June 19. Under the deal, Israel agreed to reopen the crossings to allow much-needed goods into Gaza.
