Israel stops aid to Gaza "until further notice" (updated)

From COGAT:
Kerem Shalom crossing will remain closed today, due to mortar shell impacts on the crossing itself and its surrounding areas.
Palestine Today quotes them as saying that it will be closed "until further notice."

Kerem Shalom remained open and Israel continued to send aid to Gaza during the worst of the rocket attacks over the past week, but this decision apparently came about after the terminal itself was attacked yesterday.

There were five mortars fired from Gaza to Israel on Sunday, in what the media is calling a "truce."

UPDATE: 2 more mortars this morning.
