Israel Cuts Off Gas Supply to Gaza

Israel strikes Gaza militant sites, Palestinians fire rockets

Israeli PM warns Hamas will face a 'wall of steel'

Critics of the law, which passed with 43 votes in favor and 24 against in the 120-seat Knesset, said it was a blow to core democratic values like free speech and part of the Israeli government's effort to delegitimize rights groups and NGOs.

The strike came hours after a fragile ceasefire between Israel and Hamas went into effect, following the most severe exchange of fire between Israel and Hamas since the 2014 war. There was no immediate comment from officials in Cairo.

"There is no such thing as a ceasefire which excludes the fire kites and fire balloons", Netanyahu said, referencing the ceasefire agreement brokered by Egypt on July 14 between Hamas and Israel.

The powerful blasts shook Gaza homes and black plumes of smoke were seen rising from the sites of the explosions.

Hamas responded by firing a rocket into Israel.

The tightened restrictions follow months of clashes and Hamas-staged protests along the Israel-Gaza border.

"I am deeply concerned about the imposition of further restrictions at Kerem Shalom, which is the lifeline for Gaza's population, said Humanitarian Coordinator for the occupied Palestinian territory on Tuesday". It appeared to be the first case of Gaza militants using birds to attack Israel and authorities said they were considering filing a complaint - under the appropriate global treaties - about the use of animals for militant activities.

The incident occurred amid a lull in tensions between Israel and militant groups in the strip, after a conflagration over the weekend saw some 200 rockets and mortars launched towards the Jewish state, 30 of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

Hamas denies this and its spokesman Fawzi Barhoum blamed Israel on Saturday for the escalation.

Citing the daily Hebrew-language newspaper Israel Hayom, IPT said Hamas is preparing to mount explosive material on unmanned aerial vehicles to target Israel communities deeper into the country.

Since May protests began along the Gaza buffer zone to end the blockade, at least 139 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, according to the Gaza health ministry.

The strikes signalled a tougher Israeli response to the hundreds of balloons and kites carrying firebombs that have been launched from the blockaded Gaza Strip since April.

He said Hamas will face a "wall of steel" if it keeps up its aggression against Israel, but added that the threat wouldn't disappear overnight. Organisers say the demonstrations aim to press demands for a right to lands lost to Israel in the 1948 war of its foundation and for the blockade to ease.

At the same time, Egypt announced that it would close the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Sinai.
