Israel Closes Gaza Border Crossings, Amid Spate of Rocket Attacks

1

Israel announced the closure of its Gaza border crossings on Thursday in response to daily rocket fire from the enclave over the past week.

The military said in a statement that “due to the security events and in accordance with security assessments” Kerem Shalom crossing — the main passage point for goods entering the Gaza Strip, and the Erez pedestrian crossing — would be shut as of Thursday. It did not say how long the closure would last.

Some 15 rockets have been fired into southern Israel since Trump’s Dec. 6 announcement, and none of the projectiles has caused serious injury or damage.
