Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist government has declared a 48-hour lockdown which began at midnight Monday night after four cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, were discovered in the Al Maghazi section of Gaza City, in central Gaza.

It is the first case of community spread of the virus in the terrorist-run enclave.


For 48 hours, all movement will be under restriction across the entire Gaza Strip, according to Hamas.

The lockdown covers all public and private sectors, mosques, halls, educational institutions and markets; all gatherings are banned.
