The Erez border crossing between Israel and northern Gaza Strip.

Israel has reopened two key border crossings in the Gaza Strip as a fragile truce holds in the troubled region.

Both Erez and Kerem Shalom crossings are operating at the border a Defense Ministry unit spokesperson confirmed in a statement earlier this week.

IDF closed the crossings earlier this month following an escalation of violence by Hamas and terror factions who fired hundreds of rockets at Israeli territories.

Four Israeli civilians and 25 Palestinians, including nine militants, were killed in two days of violence.

Though Palestinian officials said Israel had agreed terms of a deal in exchange for calm, Israel has not publicly confirmed details. 
The deal did however see Israel reopen the fishing zone off the Gaza coast aside from loosening restrictions on goods and people coming in and out of Gaza.

The crossing update followed an isolated incident after the cease-fire when Israel’s military killed a Palestinian at a weekly demonstration at Israel’s border fence with Gaza.

Time will tell if a truce continues.
