White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby says the US is urging Israel to allow humanitarian aid to enter Gaza at the levels that were delivered during the seven-day pause that ended today.

During the pause, 200 trucks of aid entered Gaza each day in addition to several fuel tankers.

Kirby says it’s a “good sign” that Israel allowed dozens of trucks of aid to enter today at the request of the US.

However, the aid has not included fuel, which the US says is critical for keeping life-saving infrastructure in Gaza operational.
