The Kerem Shalom Crossing from the Gaza Strip was closed to commercial goods on Tuesday, the IDF Spokesperson stated.

The Erez crossing from Gaza would be operating in a limited capacity and would be used only for humanitarian needs.

The crossings were closed following the firing of the rocket from Gaza to Ashkelon Tueday morning, the Spokesperson confirmed.
