Nov. 20, 2008 9:37 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 20, 2008 9:37 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak instructed Israeli forces to keep crossings into the Gaza Strip closed on Thursday, following his reevaluation of the current situation with concerned parties.

Meanwhile, the Jordanian Islamic Front Party in Amman received an official permit to protest the Rafah closure. At the demonstration, the party called on Egypt to open the crossing and end Egypt's role in the blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip.
