Egypt: 130,000 liters of fuel, 200 trucks of aid to enter Gaza daily during pause

Egypt says some 200 trucks of humanitarian aid, 130,000 liters of diesel and four trucks of gas will enter the Gaza Strip daily once the temporary lull in fighting goes into effect at 7a.m. on Friday. It is part of a highly anticipated hostage-and-truce deal that will see a total of 50 Israeli hostages, women and children, freed by Hamas over a four-day ceasefire and the release by Israel of 150 Palestinian prisoners.

Hamas and other terror factions abducted some 240 people from Israel on October 7 when thousands of terrorists rampaged through southern Israel, killing some 1,200 people, a majority of them civilians in their homes and at an outdoor music festival amid shocking brutality. Many of the terrorists wore cameras and gleefully streamed their atrocities.

Egypt and Qatar helped mediate the negotiations. According to the deal, the truce will last four days and hostages will be released in groups each day. The first group of 13 is set for release at 4p.m. Friday, according to the Qataris.
