PA: Commercial trucks will be allowed to enter Gaza from West Bank

Commercial trucks

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — The Palestinian Ministry of Transportation declared Thursday that it has opened applications for commercial trucks to enter the Gaza Strip from the occupied West Bank, in what the ministry said was the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) attempt to “lessen the siege on Gaza.”

The PA Minister of Transportation Samih Tbila said that the step was also being conducted in order to “respond to people’s needs in different sectors.”According to Tbila, applications will be open until June 20. It remained unclear what procedures were being made in accordance with Israeli authorities, who control Gaza’s borders as part of a crippling military blockade that has besieged the small coastal enclave from its land, air and sea sides for nearly a decade.
