GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces allowed limited commercial and agricultural goods into Gaza on Thursday via the Kerem Shalom crossing.

Israel allowed 300 truckloads of goods to enter Gaza and two trucks of flowers and strawberries to be exported from the coastal enclave, Palestinian border crossing official Raed Fattouh told Ma'an.

Twenty-two cars will also enter Gaza together with communications equipment and cement for international projects, he said.

The southernmost border crossing is the only operating entry point for commercial goods and humanitarian aid into the coastal enclave, which is home to more than 1.65 million Palestinians.
