Despite the danger, the passage continued to transfer merchandise until the noon hours, including more than 30 trucks loaded with humanitarian equipment.

 

The statement added that a rocket salvo around 12:30 pm scored a direct hit on the working area of the crossing. Afterwards, the security establishment decided to not endanger the lives of the employees and close the crossing until further notice.

 

The broder authority's statement said that "after continuous and intentional fire on the Kerem Shalom Crossing, during the morning and at noon, a salvo which almost hit trucks carrying flammable materials on their way into the Strip, we decided to take the exceptional measure of closing the crossing in order to protect the employees."

 

It added: "The crossing remained open throughout IDF Operation Protective Edge, despite the ceaseless rocket fire around us, and served as a vital – exclusive – passage for goods and humanitarian equipment into Gaza."
