Israel says closing Gaza's main trade terminal in anti-Hamas crackdown

"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.
