Israel opens Gaza border crossings
JERUSALEM -- Israel has opened its border crossings with the Gaza Strip after closing them once again because of Palestinian rocket fire.
Israeli military spokesman Peter Lerner says the crossings opened Sunday morning and that food, fuel and cement are being sent into Gaza. He says Palestinians seeking medical treatment are also being allowed into Israel.
Israel and Gaza militants reached a truce agreement June 19. Under the deal, Israel agreed to reopen the crossings to allow much-needed goods into Gaza.
But since then, militants have repeatedly launched rockets into Israel and Israel has shut the crossings in response. The last closure was Friday. Both sides accuse each other of violating the cease-fire.
Gaza's Hamas government says it is expecting around 80 trucks to enter Gaza on Sunday.
