Eshkol Residents to Protest Kerem Shalom Traffic


Residents of the Eshkol region will try to block access to the Kerem Shalom Crossing and shipments at the crossing into Gaza on Monday in protest of the volume of traffic on the route to the site. The demonstrators say the 350 tractor-trailers traveling to and from the site since the closing of the Karni and Erez crossings endanger everyone on the route.

The residents are demanding that the government immediately widen Highway 232 because of the amount of truck traffic from the Gaza deliveries, as well as from emergency military traffic.
