Israel has re-opened its border crossings with the Gaza Strip.

Palestinians stand next to trucks, carrying fruits received from Israel, at the Palestinian side of Sufa crossing, between Israel and the Gaza Strip, 29 Jun 2008Military spokesman Peter Lerner says the Sufa, Karni and the Nahal Oz crossings opened Wednesday. He said cement shipments will delivered for the first time in a year into the Gaza Strip.

The border crossings were closed on Tuesday in response to a rocket attack on southern Israel on Monday. There were no causalities in the incident.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert Tuesday warned Palestinian militants that Israel will respond militarily if they continue attacks from the Gaza Strip in violation of a truce.

He said Israel's restraint in the face of rocket attacks up to now should not be interpreted as a weakness.
