Karni Crossing to reopen Sun. after month closure

The Karni trade crossing into the Gaza Strip will reopen to business on Sunday after it was closed for close to a month due to terror warnings. The IDF shut the crossing in mid-January after receiving intelligence that Palestinian terror groups were digging "terror tunnels" under the crossing. Following Karni's closure, the Defense Ministry announced plans to open the Kerem Shalom pedestrian crossing in the southern tip of Gaza to humanitarian and commercial goods. The Palestinians however rejected the offer and accused Israel of tightening its siege on Gaza due to the Palestinian elections.
