Karm Abu Salem border crossing closed

Hamas said Monday that Israel closed the Karm Abu Salem border crossing because the Hamas-run Ministry of Economy had asked that the cost of delivering goods be reduced.
Hatem Uwaidah, a senior official with the ministry, claimed that the cost of transporting goods through the border crossing was 1200 NIS.
He said that 700 NIS of the fee goes to Israel, while the remaining 500 NIS go to the Hamas government.
Israel, he added, is refusing to lower the cost of transporting goods or discuss other proposals to facilitate the work at the border crossing.
