Gaza Border Crossing Set Ablaze

Scores of Palestinians are setting fire and destroying the Palestinian side of the Kerem Shalom crossing. The law-breakers are damaging fuel and gas pipes that serve the people of Gaza, IDF spokesperson unit reports Friday evening.

"This is a cynical act which damages the wellbeing of the people of Gaza and the Humanitarian efforts carried out by Israel and other countries," the IDF spokesperson stated.
