Terrorists in Gaza fired a 107 mm rocket at the Kerem Shalom crossing for goods, the Defense Ministry said Thursday. The attack came despite the fact that the crossing is used by Israel to send hundreds of trucks of  humanitarian goods and fuel per day.

Since the beginning of the war, more than 5,000 trucks carrying tens of thousands of tons of humanitarian goods, including medical equipment, food, fuel, gas, and other goods have crossed via Kerem Shalom into Gaza.
