Israel reopens Gaza commercial crossing in sign of easing tensionsIsrael reopened its commercial crossing with the Gaza Strip on Sunday but kept military reinforcements deployed on the volatile frontier, a day after a smaller than expected Palestinian protest along the border. Gaza medical officials said four Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire during demonstrations on Saturday marking the first anniversary of the “Great March of Return” protests. An Israeli military spokesman noted that there had been “significantly less violence” during Saturday’s protest, which organizers had billed a “million person march,” than in past weekly demonstrations.
