Hamas authorities have closed the Gaza border with Israel on Sunday morning in the wake of the assassination of one of the senior commander, Mazen Faqha. This reflected Hamas’ shock after the killing of Mazen Faqha, who was was assassinated on Friday night outside of his Gaza home, according to reports. Hamas is blaming Israel’s Mossad for his death. Hamas Interior Ministry spokesman Iyad al-Bozum has announced that the Beit Hanoun checkpoint, which faces the Israeli crossing of Erez in the north of the Gaza Strip, would be closed until further notice. “In light of the humanitarian situation, only the residents of Gaza with humanitarian cases will be allowed to return to Gaza via the Beit Hanoun checkpoint,” Bozum said. Bozum confirmed that Hamas security services were investigating the circumstances of Faqha’s killing. He called on Gaza’s citizens and media to be responsible in dealing with the event and not to circulate rumours about the incident.
As a result of the closing, neither Palestinians nor international representatives are allowed in or out of the strip.
