The Palestinian authority on Sunday reopened partially the passageways between Gaza strip and Israel, but threatened to close them again in case Israel seizes Palestinian goods, reported Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).  

Palestinians closed the Karni, Erez and Sofa passageways four days ago following a strike by Palestinian workers, who protested the seizure of Palestinian goods, said KUNA.  

Salim Abu Safiah, the official in charge of passageways in the PA, was quoted as saying that "we would keep the passageways open if the employees exercise their work properly.  

"If something wrong happens, we will close the passageways again," he said -
