Hamas shuts Gaza crossings against covid-19 spread

The Erez and Rafah border crossings from Gaza to Israel and Egypt were closed Sunday morning on the coronavirus emergency orders of the Hamas rulers of the Palestinian enclave, along with schools. Returning Gazans are among the 1,400 in quarantine. No cases have so far been reported in this territory. Israel and the Palestinian Authority have established joint procedures for dealing with covid-19 on the West Bank where 35 cases were confirmed, mostly in the Bethlehem region from visiting pilgrims. Cooperation includes the transfer of equipment and training.

    Very good Hamas!
    No Jews admitted in Gaza!
    But, we need an Islamic March against Corona.
    And some burning tires, because the heavy smoke kill germs.
