The Gaza border was re-opened on Sunday, after a deadly terror attack by Hamas militants on Friday in which two Israeli soldiers were killed and three wounded.
The attack was considered the deadliest attack in the recent weeks. Following the attack, Israel closed the crossing in response.
On Sunday, the Israeli army authorized Palestinians from Gaza to travel to the Jewish seminary in the city of Bnei Brak, located in Israel, for the first time in five months. The approval was given to 250 students from the seminary.
The Hamas-controlled Ministry of Interior and Economy in Gaza said that the decision was taken after coordination with the Palestinian side in Israel to open the crossing with the student permit, under the supervision of the Israeli side.
The approval of the opening of the crossing comes after several weeks of relative calm in the region, following the announcement of a ceasefire deal between Hamas and Israel in May 2021.
