Israel reopened the Kerem Shalom crossing in the Gaza strip on Friday AFP reported.

According to IDF spokesman, Guy Inbar, the crossing "doesn't normally function on Friday but we opened it especially to allow the transport of goods blocked since its closure on Monday."

The move to open the crossing comes after calls from the UN to ease Israeli restrictions of the flow of goods into the Gaza Strip.

When the crossings are closed, only materials that are considered essential or an emergency are allowed though.
