As part of its collective punishment policy, Israel reduces Gaza fishing zone

Israel shuts Gaza’s only commercial crossing

The prime minister promised to stop Hamas's bomb-laden kites and balloons during a surprise visit to the south.

Days after the heaviest exchange of fire between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza since a 2014 conflict, Israel said it was blocking until Sunday fuel and gas deliveries through its only goods crossing with the enclave.

"People's life (in Gaza) has become more hard as people have limited money, the economy has collapsed, electricity and water are scarce", he said.

Palestinian analyst Nasser Hammad has suggested that Israel is afraid of the flare of the Gaza Strip, so it will confer with Egypt to restore calm in Gaza.

Fuel deliveries will be suspended until Sunday, the military said in a statement.

Thick plumes of smoke rose over parts of the Gaza Strip as Israel hit dozens of targets it said belonged to militants, including a high-rise building allegedly used by Hamas as a training facility with a tunnel underneath.

A month later, the Israeli Shin Bet security agency indicted Mortaji for actively working with Hamas' armed wing, the Izzeddine al-Qassam Brigades, "communicating with foreign spies and conspiring with intentions to harm state security".

A vast air offensive, "Operation Cast Lead", was launched in December 2008 to stop Palestinian rocket fire into Israel.

Critics accuse it of disproportionate force against protesters.

Hamas, which dominates Gaza, warned Israel of "dangerous consequences". The United Nations envoy arrived in the Gaza Strip earlier on Sunday and stressed the urgent need to protect Palestinian children against the ongoing Israeli violence.

The only entrance to Gaza not controlled by Israel is at Rafah on the Egyptian border.

The arson attacks began during mass demonstrations along the border, at which thousands of Palestinians have expressed their support for the declared right of Palestinian refugees to return to their ancestral homes in what is now Israel and also demanded an end to the blockade of Gaza imposed by Israel and Egypt.

No Israeli have been killed. No Israelis have been killed.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday met with nine leaders of the Gaza envelope settlements in Sderot settlement, at the northern borders of Gaza.

"Further, the global community has the responsibility to act immediately and meet the expectations not only of providing aid to the people of Gaza, but of designing a political path to move forward", he said, and key allies in this effort would be the Palestinian people in Gaza themselves.

Israel, the Hamas and Jihad groups had announced a ceasefire in Gaza, but Tel Aviv has kept its threat that the situation on the ground will determine whether it will hold.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) in four instances attacked a squad that was launching arson balloons from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory.
