Israel closes people crossing with Gaza after border violence

Israel closes people crossing with Gaza after border violenceIsrael closed Sunday its only crossing for people with the Gaza Strip except for humanitarian cases after weekend border clashes, the latest tightening of its blockade on the Palestinian enclave despite truce efforts.
