Israel keeps Gaza Border crossings close
Israel kept closed Tuesday three Gaza Strip border crossings for commercial goods in retaliation for a rocket fired from the Palestinian territory in violation of a calm, a military spokesman said. "The Sufa, Karni and Nahal Oz crossing points will remain closed Tuesday until a further order in reaction to a rocket fired on Monday evening," said Israeli military spokesman Peter Lerner.
"We'll review the situation at the end of the day and then take a decision," he added, according to the AP.
A rocket fired from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip late on Monday landed in a field in southern Israel and did not cause any casualties or damage, according to police sources.
Israel allowed the Sufa terminal to reopen on Sunday after closing it on Wednesday due to rocket fire from Islamic Jihad activists. The Karni crossing, the largest goods transit point, was kept mostly closed on Sunday.
