Israel has announced the easing of some restrictions imposed on the Palestinian Gaza Strip, including the expansion of the fishing zone off its coast, the reopening of the Kerem Shalom Crossing, an increase in the share of besieged strip water and the number of permits for traders.
He also spoke about the coordination of the work of the Ministry of Defense of the Palestinian Territories (COGAT) on “political approval for the expansion of the Gaza Strip to 15 nautical miles”.
Among the other facilities mentioned in the report, “the crossroads to bring equipment and supplies (Kerem Abu Salem) must be fully reopened.”
The Israeli announcement on Wednesday comes just a week after Israel agreed to allow international civil projects and private sector projects, equipment and supplies to import new vehicles and gold trade between the strip and the West Bank.
The sector’s share increased to “five million cubic meters” in Wednesday’s announcement, allowing an additional 5,000 merchants to cross the Beat Hanun (Eres) Crossroads, bringing their total number to “seven thousand merchants.”
The report (COGAT) stipulates that these facilities will take effect on Wednesday and that “long-term security stability will continue to be maintained and their expansion will be considered in the context of the situation.”
