Gaza, ALRAY -- The Israeli occupation on Monday morning decided to close Karam Abu Salem crossing, southeast of the besieged Gaza Strip.
Raed Fattouh, the head of the presidential committee in charge of coordinating the entry of goods into Gaza, said that the Israeli authorities informed them that the crossing will be closed starting Monday until further notice.
Israeli occupation announced that the closure came in response to a rocket attack launched from the Gaza Strip.
Karam Abu Salem is the sole commercial outlet through which goods are brought into the Gaza Strip whose roughly two million inhabitants have been living under crippling blockade for over 13 years.
Israeli occupation later announced the closure of Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing too and more tightened restrictions on the fishing activity in Gaza sea.
