Israel defence minister orders ‘complete siege’ to Gaza – moneyamebo

Date:

Israeli Defence Minister, Yoav Gallant, has ordered a “complete siege” on the Gaza Strip as the military pounded the Palestinian territory with air strikes.

Gallant gave the order in a video message, referring to the enclave that is overcrowded with 2.3 million people, according to AFP.

Gallant said “We are putting a complete siege on Gaza… No electricity, no food, no water, no gas — it’s all closed.”

Over 1,000 people have been killed in southern Israel since Hamas militants stormed across the border on Saturday, shooting people in the communities and towns near Gaza before Israeli security forces began fighting back.

An estimated 250 people were killed by Hamas gunmen at a music festival attended by young Israelis and foreigners near Kibbutz Reim, close to Gaza, according to an organisation that helped to recover the bodies.

“We are fighting animals and are acting accordingly,” Gallant said in Hebrew.
