Israel has decided on Sunday to keep a tight blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip after Gaza militants continued their homemade rockets attacks on southern Israel, Palestinian security sources said.
The sources said that Israel, which has been imposing a blockade on the enclave since Nov. 4, is not allowing fuels, mainly the industrial diesel for operating Gaza power plant, and food products into Gaza.
Israel closed all Gaza commercial crossings following a resumption of rockets attacks carried out by Gaza militants on southern Israel, in spite of a six-month Egyptian-brokered lull was ends on Dec. 19.
International humanitarian organizations have warned that the ongoing blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip would lead to a serious humanitarian crisis.
The fighting between Israel and Gaza militant groups were renewed after Israel killed six Hamas militants in southeast Gaza Strip last month. Israel said it destroyed a tunnel near the borders was going to be used in attacking Israel.
Overnight, Israeli warplanes attacked with air-to-ground missiles two militant groups in northern Gaza Strip, wounding one militant seriously, Palestinian medics and witnesses said.
The witnesses said that an Israeli helicopter fired on Saturday night one missile and destroyed a rocket launcher in northern Gaza Strip, adding that no injuries were reported.
They also said another Israeli warplane fired another missile at a group of militants in northern Gaza Strip, wounding one person critically.
