Naval Blockade on Gaza


The IDF has imposed a naval blockade on Gaza as soldiers enter the area. IDF spokesmen said the closure was imposed because terrorists were present in waters off the Gaza coast, and their presence endangered residents of southern Israel.

Israeli tanks and warships began targeting Gaza terrorists with artillery fire on Saturday. Several targets were hit.
