Israel will temporarily reopen Gaza's main cargo crossing Kerem Shalom on Tuesday to allow the transfer of the humanitarian aid of gas, food and medicine to the besieged Palestinian enclave.

The crossing will be reopened for a few hours to transfer the humanitarian aid to the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Gaza Strip, an Israeli government spokesperson told Xinhua.

The decision came amid the eighth day of intense fighting between Israel and Gaza's ruler Hamas, killing 204 Palestinians, including 59 children, and 10 Israelis, including a five-year-old boy and a soldier.
