Israel suspends fuel deliveries to Gaza over arson attacks

Israel suspends fuel deliveries to Gaza
Israel has tightened restrictions on its only cargo crossing with the Gaza Strip, after Palestinians carried out fresh attacks with incendiary balloons.

No fuel will enter through Kerem Shalom until Sunday, but food and medicine deliveries will still be permitted.
Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said it was responding to "continued terror attempts" by the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas.
Hamas, which dominates Gaza, warned Israel of "dangerous consequences".
On Saturday, the Israeli military carried out waves of air strikes across the coastal territory in response to some of the most intensive bombardments from Gaza since the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas.
Two Palestinians were killed and 14 others wounded in the Israeli strikes, while four Israelis were wounded when more than 200 rockets and mortars were fired towards southern Israel.
The violence subsided after Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants agreed to a ceasefire brokered by Egypt.
