Fresh aid convoy tries for northern Gaza after Saturday bid largely stopped short — report

A convoy of aid trucks made its way to northern Gaza Sunday, the New York Times reports, quoting a Palestinian businessman involved in the initiative.

According to the report, only one out of 16 trucks sent to northern Gaza on Saturday made it to its destination, with the other 15 being cleaned out in central Gaza’s Nuseirat refugee camp.

According to COGAT, 277 aid trucks entered Gaza on Sunday, the Times reports.

The report does not say how many trucks were aiming for northern Gaza or if any of them made it there.

According to the Times, Israel has begun sending in convoys arranged by the Palestinian business community after the UN’s agency for Palestinian refugees and the World Food Program said they could no longer deal with the crisis.
