Israel is gearing to transfer food and gas to Gaza via the Kerem Shalom so as not to exacerbate the Strip's economic state following the destruction of the majority of smuggling tunnels by the Egyptian army.
A senior defense source said, "There is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza. There is economic pressure following the destruction of the tunnels which still serve for the transfer of cheap fuel. Hamas has dealt with the two latest rocket attacks at Israel, and is trying to maintain calm." (Yoav Zitun)
