Israel-Hamas war: First trucks carrying humanitarian aid enter Gaza

Israel-Hamas war: The first trucks carrying aid have entered Gaza for the first time since the Israel-Hamas war erupted.

The trucks crossed the Rafah crossing and entered the border from Egypt into Gaza.

The Rafah crossing was damaged during the conflict. This delayed the humanitarian relief aid needed in Gaza. The World Health Organization (WHO) says it is working with Egypt and the Palestine Red Crescent Society to ensure medical supplies reach hospitals in Gaza. One of the trucks is loaded with coffins.

Others were carrying medicines and other relief materials. A UN agency said the aid convoy entering through the Rafah border crossing is a “drop in the ocean” of the amount required in Gaza.

Israel has agreed to allow around 20 trucks carrying food, water, and medicine into Gaza through the southern crossing from Egypt, while the UN says at least 100 are required to deliver the required immediate assistance. Earlier, Hamas released its first hostages since its major surprise attack on Israel two weeks ago.
