War cabinet ministers Benny Gantz and Gadi Eisenkot are examining the possibility of limiting the entry of humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip for a short period of time until the distribution of aid is no longer controlled by Hamas, Channel 12 reports.

The two ministers reportedly believe that limiting the entry of aid for a short amount of time will place pressure on an alternative body to take responsibility for distribution of the aid among the enclave’s civilians.

In addition, the limited entry of aid could increase pressure on Hamas to release the hostages still held captive in the Strip, the report adds.
