Gaza crossings closed for 2nd day
Israel continued its closure of all crossings into Gaza on Tuesday for the second day, a Palestinian Authority official told Ma'an.
Raed Fattouh said Israeli authorities informed the liaison office that the goods crossing in southern Gaza, Kerem Shalom, was closed for the import and export of goods for "security reasons."
The passenger crossing in northern Gaza, Erez, will also remain closed, except for "humanitarian cases only," Fattouh said.
Israel announced Monday morning it had shut down the crossings following rocket fire.
Israel responded by launching a series of air strikes on the coastal enclave.
It remains unclear which military wing launched the rockets.
Islamic Jihad denied Monday that it's military wing was responsible, a day after severing ties with the ruling Hamas movement in Gaza over the fatal shooting of an affiliate by Hamas police.
