Kerem Shalom

   International crossing point on the Gaza Strip-Egypt border, located at the point where Israel's border meets those of Egypt and the Gaza Strip. Pursuant to an Israeli-Palestinian agreement of 15 November 2005, Palestinian Authority customs officials were to clear incoming cargo at Kerem Shalom under the supervision of Israeli customs agents, with the United States and the European Union assisting in the resolution of disputes. However, due primarily to the collapse of trust and cooperation between Israeli and Palestinian officials, the Kerem Shalom crossing was only infrequently used. On 25 June 2006, a team of Palestinian terrorists killed two Israeli soldiers, kidnapped a third, and wounded several others after tunneling beneath Kerem Shalom from the Gaza Strip.
