May 04,2019

It is likely the Israeli occupation is preparing for a massive offensive on the besieged people of Gaza Strip.

Israeli occupation authorities have announced full closure of all Gaza crossings, starting from Sunday until further notice.

According to a statement, the Israeli occupation authorities said that the closure was decided in the light of the ongoing Israeli escalation in Gaza.

Head of the Syndicate of the Palestinian Fishermen Niar Ayesh said that the Israeli occupation authorities also completely closed the sea off the Gaza coasts and prevented Palestinian fishermen from sailing even to one inch.

The Gaza Strip has been under a strict Israeli siege since mid-2007 and it is suffering from the highest unemployment and poverty rates around the world.

Since the morning, the ministry of health in Gaza, said that the Israeli strikes have killed one Palestinian and wounded seven others.

On Friday, the Israeli occupation killed four Palestinians in Gaza and wounded 150 others.
