October 15, 2018 Off By Web Desk

Israeli authorities on Sunday banned entry of all fuel shipments into the blockaded Gaza Strip, Anadolu Agency (AA) reported according to a Palestinian security official.

Israel prevented the entry of all fuel transfers, including Qatari-funded shipments, into Gaza, the official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to reporters.

On Friday, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman ordered a halt to fuel shipments to the Palestinian territory following protests on Gaza border, in which seven Palestinians were martyred and scores injured.
