After a nine-year-ban, Israeli occupation authorities yesterday allowed buses to enter the Gaza Strip, local media reported.

Palestinian sources reported that the Israeli occupation allowed the entry of eight large transportation buses and four large commercial refrigerators through the Erez crossing.

This measure, the sources said, came after a deal was reached between the Palestinian Authority’s Commission of Civil Affairs and the Israeli occupation authorities.

In 2007, the Israeli occupation banned the entry of all vehicles into the Gaza Strip. In 2010 the rule was relaxed to allow the entry of small vehicles.
