Israel to reopen Gaza's main cargo crossing

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – The Israeli military says it is reopening the Gaza Strip's main cargo crossing.


The Kerem Shalom crossing was closed over the weekend after Palestinian protesters damaged the facility.


The crossing is used to deliver food, medical supplies, fuel and building materials into the Gaza Strip. The military says it will reopen Tuesday, but it is not expected to operate at full capacity.


Israeli officials say protesters caused millions of dollars of damage to a fuel pipeline and conveyor belt that could take weeks to repair.
