Israel reopens Gaza border crossings

JERUSALEM – Israel has fully reopened the Gaza border crossings that were closed following militant rocket fire during President Obama’s visit to the region last week.

The rockets fired into a southern Israeli city had caused damage but no injuries. The attack prompted Israel to close its only border crossing for commercial goods with the coastal territory and to restrict its only civilian crossing to humanitarian cases only. It also limited the stretch of the sea where Gaza fishermen were allowed to fish.

The Israeli military said Thursday it has reopened the commercial crossing and is now allowing Palestinians with entry permits to cross into Israel through the civilian crossing. It says the fishing restrictions were still in place.

Israel has imposed restrictions on Gaza for breaches of a November truce.
