Zionist occupation authorities blocked fuel deliveries to the Gaza Strip Tuesday, the Israeli defense ministry department responsible for Palestinian civil affairs said.
The move follows “the release of arson balloons from the Gaza Strip toward the State of Israel” which caused fires across the border, COGAT said in a statement on Tuesday.
Fuel transfers were halted at the Karem Shalom goods crossing on Tuesday morning and would remain blocked “until further notice,” it added.
Fuel deliveries, which are coordinated with the United Nations and paid for by Gulf state Qatar, were agreed in late 2018 as part of a truce agreement between the Zionist entity and Hamas resistance movement.
The Zionist entity has maintained a crippling blockade of Gaza for more than a decade.
