ISRAEL SEALED OFF ITS ONLY BORDER GATE TOWARDS GAZA STRIP




Mustafa AY – TDO – 06.09.2018 Following reconciliation talks aimed at ceasefire amidst Hamas and Tel Aviv administration, Israeli government opened its only border gate named ‘Erez’ towards Gaza Strip. However, that Palestinians in Gaza Strip arranged violent demonstration against Israeli soldiers on Tuesday resulted in Tel Aviv administration’s decision on sealing off Erez border gate temporarily. In accordance with IDF’s official statement concerning the issue, Israeli government will keep Erez border gate sealed until they complete repairment of the damages occurred on Erez border gate owing to Palestinians’ demonstrations. In case of completing the process of repairment, they will reopen Erez border gate, continued the official statement. The rationale why Palestinian’s operated violent demonstrations is USA’s decision to halt allocation of fund to UN Relief and Works for Palestine Refugees Agency.
