Israel and the Palestinian Authority were working with the assistance of the UN to widen the Kerem Shalom Crossing into the Gaza Strip, Israel Radio reported. The work is meant to allow for 150 trucks to pass through the crossing on a daily basis. The plan to widen the crossing was decided following a UN report that claimed that the trucks that brought food and medicine into the Strip last week contained only 70% of supplies needed for the population. The report said at least 180 trucks would need to pass at the crossing every day. Currently the crossing's structure allows only for several dozens trucks to pass each day.
