Palestinian dies after being shot in Gaza clashes: ministry

H3 gaza

Even after Hamas, Gaza's militant rulers, agreed to a cease-fire late Saturday, incendiary kites and balloons have continued to float from Gaza into Israel setting off damaging fires to farmlands.

"Particularly worrying is the impact that shortfalls in fuel will have on the provision of critical health, water and sanitation services in Gaza", U.N. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq said in a statement.

The decision includes decreasing the fishing zone to the fishermen in Gaza from six to three nautical miles, also until further notice, and for the same "reasons".

Meanwhile, on Monday evening, Israel announced it would again close the Kerem Shalom crossing, the only crossing for commercial goods and the main crossing for humanitarian aid between Israel and Gaza, after a rocket was sacked into southern Israel earlier in the day despite a cease-fire declared by Hamas late Saturday night.

In a warning to the terrorist organization that runs Gaza, Netanyhu said: "It is important that Hamas understand that it faces an iron wall and this wall is comprised, first of all, of a determined government, of strong local leadership and Zionist settlement, and that we will continue to strengthen it and - of course - the IDF".

Hamas has slammed Israel's closure of the goods crossing as a "crime against humanity" and accused Israel of exaggerating the threat from arson kites.

"Yesterday, we were on the brink of a real war and there are great efforts to get away from the specter of war because no one would want this confrontation", he said, adding that, "calm and cease-fire must be restored in Gaza".

Speaking early Sunday, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it clear that Israel now regarded arson attacks in the same way it regarded rockets and mortars, meaning there could be no ceasefire with militants in Gaza if they kept launching incendiary kites and balloons over the fence.

Israel pounded Hamas targets in its most massive bombardment since the 2014 war, while militants fired dozens of rockets toward Israel that halted daily life in the area.

Palestinian medical sources have announced that Israeli regime's air strikes killed at least two Palestinian teenagers in Gaza while they were playing on the roof of a building in Gaza on Saturday afternoon.

Hours later, Israel launched air strikes in Gaza.

On Monday, Israeli aircraft bombed two Hamas posts after incendiary balloons caused four fires in Israel.

Israel blamed Hamas for the escalation, pointing to months of protests and clashes along the border that its military argues the Islamist movement is seeking to use as cover for attacks.

Israel says its use of live fire is necessary to defend its borders and stop infiltrations.

"In the history of Israel the Prime Minister does not communicate with the people".

The Zionist regime must now wait for the iron fist of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance and their painful reaction to the bad crimes in the Gaza Strip.
