Israel on Sunday decided to officially close Sufa Crossing from the Gaza Strip, defense officials announced. The move means that the only working crossing between Israel and the Strip will be Kerem Shalom. So far, if Kerem Shalom was fired upon, Israel would use Sufa. But now, if Hamas attacks the crossing, they will be sealing off the strip due to the lack of an alternative.
