According to the Israeli Defense Ministry, the opening of the Erez pass on Tuesday depends on the maintenance of a stable security situation in the area.

On Sunday, Israel closed the crossing in response to rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip following days of clashes at Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound and a month of deadly violence.
