29-Jun-08: Crossings

At some stage, it's going to be said that the 'truce' held more or less.

But the reality in the south of Israel is quite different. Last night, the Palestinian-Arab terrorists of Gaza fired more mortars into Israel, this time directing their efforts at the Karni crossing on the Gaza-Israel border. It's a diabolical choice, given the humanitarian conditions that mark the lives of the Gazans. Karni is the crossing that is due to be reopened by Israel today, to allow the transfer of goods into the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. All the crossings were closed a week ago following repeated truce violations (i.e. rocket firings and shootings) by the Palestinians.
