"The crossing will be closed except for humanitarian equipment (including food and medicine) that will be approved on an individual basis", Israel s military said in a statement.
Activists escort a boat carrying Palestinians injured during clashes along the Gaza security fence as it tries to break through Israel's naval blockade from the Gaza City harbor on July 10, 2018.
The devices have sparked 750 fires in southern Israel, burning more than 2,600 hectares (6,400 acres) of forest and farmland and causing hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage, Israeli officials say.
Israel will also severely limit the ability of Palestinians to fish off the coast of the Gaza Strip.
Tension along the Israel-Gaza border could ease if Israel were to allow in 5,000 Gazans from the besieged enclave on work permits, according to a Qatari diplomat mediating to resolve the dispute, Reuters reported.
"The arbitrary closure of the crossing would double the population's suffering", he added.
Israeli news outlet Ynet said that the fishing zone outside of Gaza would be curtailed to six miles from land, citing a statement by the Israeli Defense Forces.
"As for Gaza, I've already told you that I have no intention to prematurely announce all the steps we are taking", Netanyahu said.
Speaking from the enclave, Nizar Ayash, head of Gaza's fishermen's union, said the Strip's 4,000 registered fishermen would take precautionary measures when leaving shore on Tuesday.
The move, which will come into effect on Tuesday, will only allow for the transfer of humanitarian needs such as cooking gas as well as wheat and flour into the Strip, an official responsible for coordinating the movement of cargo through the border confirmed from Gaza.
Human rights groups have accused Israeli troops of using excessive force. Tel Aviv made the move in response to Palestinians launching incendiary kites across the border. "Therefore, Hamas calls on the global community to act immediately and prevent this crime and its risky consequences". The woman was holding a picture of her 15-year-old daughter, who was killed by Israeli gunfire during the deadly May protest.
