Gaza closed off as attacks continue

June 28, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The Israeli government refused to fully open crossings with the Gaza Strip, and Palestinian militants attacked Israel with mortar rounds, further testing an already fragile truce that started June 19.

For the third day, Israel prevented food trucks from entering Gaza by closing crossings in retaliation for repeated Palestinian rocket attacks, Israeli army spokesman Peter Lerner said.

Later, Palestinian militants fired two mortar shells toward Israel, police said, but no injuries or damage were reported.
