Israel closes Erez border to Gaza after incidents

Only 'individual humanitarian cases' allowed through

05 September, 11:39

    TEL AVIV - The Israeli army announced Wednesday morning that it had closed the Erez pedestrian crossing with the Gaza Strip. The decision - a military spokesman said - was taken after ''violent disorder in the area of the border crossing in which hundreds of Palestinian protestors took part'' on Tuesday. The protestors, the spokesman added, ''threw stones and damaged the border crossing facilities on the Palestinian side.
    As a result, the decision was made to close the crossing until the damage caused by the protestors is repaired.'' Crossing through will be possible only for ''humanitarian cases approved on an individual basis'', he added.
