Israel facilitated the entry of 138,000 liters of fuel into Gaza on Saturday, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says.

This is the largest amount of fuel allowed into Gaza in one day since the start of the war, according to OCHA figures.

Israel didn’t allow any fuel into Gaza on Friday — the first day since the truce between Israel and Hamas collapsed.

The US has told Israel it wanted delivery of aid to continue at the same level reached during the truce, when 200 trucks entered each day.

Just dozens of aid trucks entered Gaza on Friday.

OCHA says aid trucks carrying food, medicine, medical supplies, bottled water, blankets, tents and hygiene products entered from Egypt into Gaza on Saturday, but does not specify how many trucks.

The Palestinian Red Crescent says at least 50 trucks entered Gaza.

“Israel will continue allowing for humanitarian aid to be delivered to the Palestinian civilian population, including trucks with food, water, medicine, fuel, etc.,” an Israeli official tells The Times of Israel.
