After drawing criticism, PM said to order IDF to inspect Gaza medicine shipment

Multiple Hebrew media outlets report that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered the Israel Defense Forces to inspect a shipment of medicines set to enter Gaza today, some of which are meant to be delivered to hostages held by Palestinian terrorists.

Netanyahu was widely attacked earlier today by fellow politicians, including senior coalition members, for claiming he had nothing to do with the lack of planned security checks.

Hamas announced this morning that the deal reach via France and Qatar does not include Israel inspecting the shipment, in what would be a first during the war.

It is unclear how the new order by Netanyahu will affect the implementation of the deal.
