IOA closes Karm Abu Salem crossing

RAFAH, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) closed the Karm Abu Salem crossing, to the south of the Gaza Strip, on Sunday before fuel and other basic materials.

Radio Israel claimed that the closure was because the crossing came under gunfire from the besieged enclave that has been the target of a ferocious Israeli onslaught for the past 35 days.
Dozens of trucks are awaiting permission to enter the Strip via the crossing to ferry badly needed humanitarian and relief materials in light of the worsening conditions in the beleaguered enclave.

Karm Abu Salem crossing is the only crossing through which fuel and other commodities are allowed into the Strip. It is closed by Israel two days, Friday and Saturday, each week.
