3rd aid convoy enters Gaza Strip from Egypt

An aid convoy enters the Gaza Strip via the Rafah border crossing, AFP correspondents on both the Egyptian and Palestinian sides say, the third since Hamas carried out its massacre in southern Israel on October 7.

More than a dozen trucks crossed Rafah, the correspondents say, adding to a previous total of 34 trucks that entered Gaza on Saturday and Sunday according to an Egyptian Red Cross official.

An aid worker and two security sources confirm to the Reuters news agency that the third convoy has entered the enclave.

The United Nations says at least 100 trucks a day are needed to provide the basic needs of Gaza’s 2.4 million inhabitants.

A defense source said yesterday that Israel will allow food, water, and medical supplies — but not fuel — to enter southern Gaza from Egypt, for Palestinian civilians of the area and those who have evacuated there, as long as the supplies do not reach the Hamas terror group.
