Dozens of Jewish settlers protested on Monday in front of the Karam Abu- Salem commercial crossing with Gaza Strip and prevented the entry of commercial trucks carrying food and fuel to the besieged Palestinians there.

Israel Channel 2 reported that settlers from the Gaza envelope area have been demonstrating since morning in front of the Karam Abu- Salem crossing and closed the roads leading to the crossing.

The settlers were protesting against “tensions in (Gaza Strip)” and the Israeli security cabinet’s decision not to respond to the recent security escalation and rocket fire from Gaza.

The Israeli Security Cabinet met on Sunday evening to discuss the situation on the border with the Gaza Strip with the participation of senior security and army officials.

The Cabinet decided to use the Iron Fist policy on the one hand and give a chance to efforts reach a truce.
