From 2-4 March, Rafah crossing was partially opened for Palestinian medical patients who were injured during the IDF ‘Warm Winter’ operation in Gaza. Sufa crossing was open on all scheduled operating days, while Kerem Shalom was exceptionally open on one day. Erez crossing remained closed for all Palestinians with the exception of a limited number of medical cases, traders and Palestinian staff working for international organizations.
