Karni crossing closure defended by Israel as ‘good for security and Gaza imports’ at PS.HADNEWS.COM


Israel trying to defend the indefensible. The closure of the Karni crossing – the main route into Gaza for heavy vehicle – will increase the amount and cost of aid that can reach the Strip.

The recent transfer of traffic at the Karni border crossing to the nearby Kerem Shalom Crossing will enable greater security for Israeli personnel and allow the Gaza Strip to import more materials more efficiently than before, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) said Tuesday.

Maj.-Gen. Eitan Dangot told reporters at a press briefing at the Erez crossing on Tuesday that “when there is a terror regime there [in Gaza] and they are preparing themselves to attack Israel, each time we open Karni twice a week, we would deploy thousands of soldiers to secure the lives of people on our side. As a result of these security threats, we had to move the operations to Kerem Shalom.” more
