Israeli forces shutdown Sopha passage in south of Gaza Strip on Friday.
Palestinian sources said Israel shut down the passage which was supposed to be open today for food supplies to enter Gaza.
Israeli forces claimed the closure was called for due to security concerns.
Earlier, Hamas Movement called for a peaceful protest after Friday prayer in response to imposed sanctions on Gaza strip.
The protest comes one week after a similar protest at Al-Manthar passage east of Gaza where Israeli fire killed one Palestinian and injured 17 others.
Local sources in Gaza said Israeli forces made incursions near Sopha passage and close to the area of protest.
