Israel on Wednesday reopened the Kerem Shalom terminal on its border with Gaza after a two-day closure, a Palestinian liaison official said.
Raed Fattouh, who coordinates the entry of goods into Gaza, said Israel notified the Palestinian side that 300 trucks of goods would be allowed to enter Gaza on Wednesday.
The shipments will include construction material, fuel and domestic-use gas, Fattouh told Ma'an.
Israel closed Kerem Shalom and the passenger terminal Erez on Monday after militants in Gaza fired rockets across the border.
Israeli aircraft shelled several Islamic Jihad sites in Gaza on Monday morning in response to the rocket fire.
