The report comes within the regular Europa Express Midday
briefing today and follows the dreadful remarks of Baroness Ashton last evening which further indicates she is totally obsessed with Gaza about which the EU is incapable of doing anything because it is now, quite rightly, even than ever before, distrusted by the Israelis!
Upgrading of Karem Abu Salem/Kerem Shalom crossing point in the Gaza Strip - 13M€
This project is part of the commitment made by the European Union Foreign Ministers in the aftermath of the Gaza flotilla in 2010 to extend the EU’s support to the improvement of the crossings infrastructure in the Gaza Strip. It is an EU crisis response measure under the Instrument for Stability (IfS). It will allow the expansion of the only currently open goods crossing point in the Gaza Strip and consists of the construction and expansion of hard infrastructure (loading and inspection areas, warehouses etc.) and the supply of equipment (IT, weigh-bridge, x-ray equipment). It will be carried out by the Palestinian Authority in full coordination with the Israeli authorities.
