Okay so whos story will you beleive? News comming from the IDF controlled West bank where they do not allow reporters
29/12/2008 14:09 TEL AVIV, December 29 (RIA Novosti) - The Israeli army said on Monday it had closed the border areas adjacent to the Gaza Strip, cutting off access to journalists as it massed tanks in preparation for a possible ground assault.
Israel has massed forces along the border and has declared the area around the narrow coastal strip a "closed military zone".
Israel declared areas around Gaza a "closed military zone", citing the risk from Palestinian rocket fire, and ordering journalists observing a buildup of armored forces to leave.
"You've got to go," an army spokesman told a Reuters correspondent after she appealed a military police directive to clear out.
Excluding the press could help Israel keep under wraps its preparations for a possible ground assault against Hamas, the Islamist militant group that controls Gaza, following three days of air strikes that have caused chaos, turned some buildings to rubble and left hospitals struggling to cope.
