Israeli settlers demand closure of Gaza's main crossing

Dec. 13, 2018 3:02 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 14, 2018 4:57 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers demonstrated on the road leading to the Kerem Shalom commercial crossing along the southern Gaza border, on Thursday.

According to local sources, a large number of Israeli settlers gathered to demonstrate by igniting tires on fire on the road leading to the Kerem Shalom crossing.

Sources added that the demonstrators demanded the closure of the crossing and to ban imports to the Gaza Strip.

There are three crossings into the Gaza Strip; two are controlled by Israel and one by Egypt. The Gaza-Israel crossings are the Erez crossing in the northern Gaza Strip, that is specifically for pedestrians, and Kerem Shalom in the southern Gaza Strip for the entry of goods and fuel. The Gaza-Egypt crossing is the Rafah crossing in the southern Gaza Strip, but is often closed and lacks infrastructure for it to be a main commercial crossing.
