Israel imposes new rules for taking goods into Gaza
Israel has imposed new rules on trucks taking goods into the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom Crossing, the only commercial border post with the territory, Palsawa has reported. The new rules were applied.
According to a local economic media source, the Israeli police set up a new checkpoint at the entrance to the crossing and insisted that the payload of every truck must not exceed 36 tons. The previous limit was 40 tons. The change, noted the source, will mean that the price of all goods will increase, creating even more hardship for the beleaguered Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
