Gaza Crossings Closed in Wake of Attack

Israel ordered the stoppage of all aid to Gaza after Israeli troops were attacked along the Gaza security fence near Kissufim Tuesday morning, according to nana/10. Gaza terrorists detonated a bomb as an army unit patrolled the area, then fired rocket-propelled grenades at the force. Israel responded with tank and machine-gun fire, killing a Gaza resident, according to Gaza sources.

An officer of the army's Southern Command believes that incidents of this kind will continue and that Hamas will try to abduct soldiers, but that was not what happened Tuesday morning.
