Israel announces Gaza sanctions in response to cross-border blazes

Gaza blockade: Israel shuts goods crossings to pressure Hamas

Israel's navy seized a boat on Tuesday that had left from a Gaza port with wounded Palestinians aboard in a bid to challenge the blockade of the Hamas-run enclave.

The shuttered Kerem Shalom crossing is Gaza's main conduit for trade - albeit under years of Israeli restrictions.

Activists escort a boat carrying Palestinians injured during clashes along the Gaza security fence as it tries to break through Israel's naval blockade from the Gaza City harbor on July 10, 2018.

A government official told Al Jazeera that humanitarian products such as cooking gas, wheat and flour would be allowed to continue crossing into Gaza.

A Hamas spokesman called the Israeli move "a new crime against humanity".

By which Hamas means Israel must not slap the dog that bites its hand.

This comes after Hamas launched flaming kites and balloons into Israel, and attacked the Israeli security personnel at the Gaza border fence.

Arabic-language spokesman for the Israeli army, Avichay Adraee, took to social media to reveal that the measures also included reducing Gaza's designated fishing zone from nine to six nautical miles off the coast.

An Israeli military statement said the Palestinian fishing zone off Gaza would revert to 11 km (6 miles) after being temporarily expanded to 17 km (9 miles). The Hamas terrorist organization is responsible for what is happening inside the Gaza Strip and coming out of it. Hamas is dragging the population of Gaza into the abyss, and the Israeli Defense Forces will continue to work to preserve Israel's security interests.

Worldwide and regional silence for the crime of the suffocating siege imposed on the Gaza Strip for (nearly) 12 years has encouraged the Israeli enemy to carry on with its criminal measures that violate human rights and global laws.

Hamas, which has fought three wars with Israel since 2008, called on the worldwide community to intervene immediately to prevent what it called a "new crime against humanity".

Wildfires have razed 7,000 acres of forests and farmland, Israel says. "There will be other steps which I won't detail", he said.

March organisers have rejected such allegations, stating that while Hamas has participated in the demonstrations like other Palestinian political factions, the group was not playing a leading role in the protests.

The move tightens the blockade on Gaza, which has been in place since 2007.
