Israeli occupation authorities have continued their closure of the Beit Hanoun/Erez crossing into Gaza for the eleventh day in a row, causing significant disruptions for thousands of workers and patients.
The General Authority for Crossings and Borders in Gaza had previously announced that a full closure of the Beit Hanoun crossing was imposed on both Sunday and Monday, September 24-25, citing “Jewish holidays” as the reason.
In recent times, Israel has frequently shut down the Beit Hanoun crossing, employing it as part of a broader collective punitive policy against Gaza’s residents.
This decision is ostensibly linked to ongoing protests in the border areas of Gaza, showing solidarity with Al-Aqsa Mosque and Palestinian prisoners.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip reported, in its latest updates, that 31 Palestinians had suffered various injuries inflicted by Israeli forces in the eastern areas of the Gaza Strip.
Palestinians in Gaza persistently stage protests along the border areas, expressing their outrage over Israeli aggressions against Al-Aqsa Mosque and the conditions of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli detention.
The Israeli occupation has imposed a blockade on the Gaza Strip for over 17 years, directly affecting various aspects of life in the region.
Israel controls six border crossings, hampers Palestinian movement and access to medical treatment, and impedes reconstruction efforts following the five aggressions it has waged on the Gaza Strip.
