Israel closes main cargo crossing to Gaza Strip:
Israel closed a main cargo crossing with the Gaza Strip and destroyed a Hamas militant tunnel on Saturday, a day after renewed violence between Palestinian protesters and Israeli forces on the edge of the coastal enclave. Dozens of Palestinian demonstrators broke into the Kerem Shalom terminal on Friday. They set alight a pipeline that delivers gas, torched a conveyor belt and damaged a fuel pipe. “The crossing will remain closed until the damages caused by the riots are repaired,” the Israeli military said.
