Israel late Wednesday night made additional humanitarian gestures to Gaza ahead of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s first meeting on Thursday with US President Joe Biden. “Following a security assessment and approved by the political echelon, it has been decided to expand the entry of goods and equipment for international civilian projects in the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom Crossing,” the Office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) announced.

During the 11-day Gaza war in May, known as Operation Guardian of the Walls, Israel closed its two crossings into Gaza, the commercial one at Kerem Shalom and the pedestrian one at Erez. In the aftermath of the war, Israel only partially restored the movement of goods and people. Each easing of passage at the crossings has been tied to periods of sustained calm.
