Gaza border shut as pull out begins

The Gaza pullout neared its climax late Sunday night. At midnight the borders closed to the ‘occupied’ region of Gaza, effectively making it illegal for Israelis to remain. The land has been part of Israel since 1967. Operations to remove settlers will start in the morning. Some 5000 settlers are still in the zone according to CNN.
