Hamas threatens with explosion if Israel tightens Gaza restrictions

Hamas threatens with explosion if Israel tightens Gaza restrictions

Ramallah, Jul 26 (Prensa Latina) The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), which rules in the Gaza Strip, threatened Israel with an explosion should it again tighten restrictions on Gaza, as balloon-borne incendiary devices launched from the enclave spark a handful of fires in southern Israel.

‘More restrictions on Gaza will only generate an explosion in the face of the occupation,’ Hamas Spokesperson Abd al-Latif al-Qanou told official Hamas radio.

‘Our people will not be patient for long over the lack of reconstruction and the lag in proceedings to break the blockade,’ Al-Qanou added.

Al Qanou’s statements responded to Israel’s refusal to allow 25 trucks laden with fuel to enter Gaza to keep the territory’s only power plant operating.

According to The Times of Israel newspaper, the trucks are stopped at the Kerem Shalom border crossing, and it is unknown when they will be able to continue rolling.

The newspaper reported that since conflict in May, Tel Aviv has imposed more restrictions on that enclave by ‘significantly limiting imports and exports’ and largely halting Qatari benefits.

Gaza experts and merchants warned a week ago about the productive sector collapse on the Palestinian territory due to Israeli bombings.

The industrial and private sectors are the most hit by the crisis, said Ali al-Hayek, director of the Palestinian Businessmen Association.
