Beginning from this morning (15 March), a certain easing of the closure imposed on the West Bank and Gaza Strip will come into effect:
· The entering and exiting of merchandise and raw goods will be permitted.
· Going out to fishing from the piers of Gaza and Dir- El-Balach will be permitted.
The IDF Spokesperson emphasises that IDF has no intention to burden the Palestinian population. All the moves taken by the IDF are for the protection and safety of Israeli civilians and were forced upon it by the Palestinian authority, who’s support of the terrorist attacks harms first and foremost the Palestinian population.
