JERUSALEM - Israel is closing the Gaza Strip's main commercial crossing in a crackdown against the Palestinian enclave's dominant Hamas Islamists, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday.

"We will crack down immediately on the Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip. In a significant move, we will today shut down the Kerem Shalom (border) crossing. There will be additional steps. I am not detailing them," he told his parliamentary faction in broadcast remarks.
