Israel orders immediate halt to Gaza fuel deliveries: Israeli ministry

JERUSALEM: Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Friday ordered an "immediate" halt to deliveries of fuel to the Gaza Strip after violent clashes with Palestinians on the Gaza-Israel border.
"Following the serious incidents in the Gaza Strip, the defence ministry orders the immediate halt to the delivery of fuel" to the area, he said in a statement, only days after a UN-brokered deal to supply the territory with Qatari-bought fuel came into effect.
