The Israeli occupation authorities announced on Wednesday that the area near the border of the Gaza Strip is now a “closed military zone.”

Israeli settlers living in the periphery of the Gaza Strip are now forbidden from approaching or entering this area at all. Even military patrols were stopped.

The decision was taken because Israel is afraid of surprise attacks by Palestinians following its bombing of a tunnel which killed 12 Palestinians on 30 October.

Immediately after the bombing, Israel declared the area to be a closed military zone, but on 5 November, that decision was rescinded.

Palestinian civil defence teams recovered the bodies of seven Palestinians from the bombed tunnel and revealed that the Israelis had denied them access to search for the other victims. Their bodies were pulled out by the Israelis at a later stage.
