Details: Daniel Hagari, the Israeli Defence Forces Spokesperson, said the army's primary task is to fix "gaps in the fence on the Gaza border".

Israel controls the airspace over Gaza and its coastline, as well as the entry and exit of goods into the Strip through its border crossings.

Similarly, Egypt controls entry and exit across its border with Gaza.

About 2.3 million people reportedly live in the Strip.

Background: Earlier, Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, Israeli Defence Forces Spokesman, said Israeli troops had regained control of all settlements on the border with Gaza.
