The Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas has warned Israel of dangerous consequences as the regime tightens its siege on the Gaza Strip by blocking fuel shipments into the coastal enclave.
On the 9th of July, Israel imposed sanctions on Gaza in what it described as a crackdown against Hamas. The regime closed the Kerem Shalom crossing, Gaza’s main conduit for trade, to most merchandise, except for fuel, food and medicine.
The Israeli military said the closure would continue as long as Palestinian protesters send kites and balloons loaded with flammable material into the occupied lands.
In response, Hamas spokesman, Fawzi Barhoum condemned Israel’s closure of the Kerem Shalom crossing as a crime against Palestinian people.
Barhoum said the vengeful measures reflect the degree of the oppression and the ugliness of the crime that Gaza is facing, that will have dangerous consequences.
