GAZA, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation authority reopened the Karm Abu Salem on Monday after four months of closure only to allow the passage of 25 trucks loaded with various goods.

 

Sources in the PA caretaker government"s national economy ministry told the PIC reporter that the supplies varied from foodstuff to plastics and detergents.

 

The Palestinian trade center said that the Karm Abu Salem crossing could handle 160 trucks per day after completion of its expansion project but the number of trucks before its closure on 1/4/2008 did not exceed 40 trucks per day.

 

It also noted that the Sufa crossing could handle 200 trucks a day but the IOA allowed entry of 80 trucks only.

 

For its part, the professional syndicates union in Gaza Strip warned on Tuesday of a popular explosion in the Strip in the event the Rafah crossing remained closed.

 

It appealed to the Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak to open the crossing to allow travel of hundreds of patients and stranded students especially with the approach of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.

 

The union called on the Arab League to activate its decision to break the siege on Gaza and save the Palestinian children from death, and urged all freedom loving peoples in the world to intervene and demand the opening of Rafah crossing.
