Palestinians are outraged at the decision by the Israeli military to clear its forces of wrongdoing over airstrikes carried out in Gaza in 2014. One activist told RT it’s now time international tribunals stepped in to deal with Israel.
A draft United Nations resolution calling for a team of UN experts to assess the environmental impact of Israeli military operations in the Gaza Strip in November 2012 and July-August 2014 was effectively “buried” by the United States, Canada and Israel on Saturday.
The Egyptian authorities closed the Rafah border terminal with Gaza Strip on Thursday night after two days of conditional opening for emergency cases. Local sources said that the crossing was closed after two buses loaded with passengers managed to cross and two others for those listed by the Egyptian authorities.
The Israeli siege imposed on the Gaza Strip has variously affected the territory's economic, business and financial sectors. Now, it is the gold market's turn. Nazmi Muhanna, general director of the Palestinian Crossing and Borders Authority, announced March 29 that Israeli officials had informed him that they were halting the movement of gold, in all forms, into and out of Gaza.
