GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities on Friday closed the Kerem Shalom crossing on Gaza's border until Monday, a crossings official said.

Israel usually closes the border on Fridays and Saturdays for the weekend, but it will remain shut for an extra day for the Jewish holiday of Purim, Palestinian Authority official Raed Fattouh told Ma'an.
