Israel Closes Gaza Border Crossings Once Again

November 21, 2009

Ma’an News reports today that Israel has closed its land-based border crossings into Gaza this Friday.  The article quotes Raed Fattouh, a Palestinian border-crossings official, as saying that Israeli authorities had informed him that transfer points into Gaza for fuel, bulk goods, and commercial goods would be closed.

Ma’an notes that Israel’s behavior in this sense follows the pattern instituted last spring, when the number of days per week that goods were allowed to pass into Gaza was reduced from 6 to 5.
