On Sunday, a Palestinian official revealed that Israel has banned all Palestinian imports, but this does not include food and medical supplies.
The official said, ‘All private sector companies have been notified of the Israeli decision to stop the entry of all commodities and goods, except food and medicine.’
Israel’s decision to cut fuel imports into Gaza was part of a plan to punish them for the launch of several fire-bomb balloons, which caused property and environmental damage. Since August 6th, Israel carried out airstrikes every day in Gaza in response to fire-bomb balloons and a rocket attack.
