The amount of commodities transferred into the Gaza Strip is set to increase by 30% on Sunday, due to the ceasefire that took hold on Thursday. The commodities will be made up mostly of clothing, shoes, and food.

In one week Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilnai is scheduled to hold a discussion on transferring cement and gravel to the Strip. Vilnai has also directed forces to investigate other ways to transfer goods into Gaza, apart from Sufa crossing.
