For the 16th day...Israel continues to close the Rafah and Kerem Shalom crossings to Gaza

The Israeli occupation forces continue to close the Rafah border crossing and the Karam Abu Salem commercial crossing in the southern Gaza Strip, for the sixteenth day in a row.


On May 7, the Israeli forces occupied the Palestinian side of the Rafah border crossing and stopped the flow of aid to the Gaza Strip.


Since the fifth of the same month, the Israeli forces have continued to close the Kerem Shalom commercial crossing southeast of the city of Rafah, and are preventing the entry of humanitarian and medical aid.


According to press sources, during the period of closure of the two crossings, the Israeli forces prevented the entry of more than 3,000 aid trucks into the Gaza Strip, and the travel of about 700 sick and wounded people for treatment outside the besieged Gaza Strip.
