Attacker shot on scene, succumbs to wounds; Of the victims, four moderately wounded, one lightly so.12:38 27.11.15 | 1 comments
The consequence of such a decision is that Israel has the right to COMPLETELY close the border with Gaza, same as it does with Syria and the same it was with Gaza prior to the 1967 occupation. A translation into practical terms: Israel has no obligation to deliver gas, electricity and humanitarian goods or to allow the crossing of the border by any person in Gaza. Gaza's border with Egypt will be, of course subject to whatever they negotiate with Egypt. And as for the sea blockade: International law allows Israel to conduct a blockade as long as there is a state of war between the two entities. Israel may choose of course not to impose a blockade, conditioned on a cease-fire agreement and possible monitoring arrangements.
