IDF preventing aid from entering Gaza via Kerem Shalom Crossing – report

The IDF prevented the entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza via the Kerem Shalom Crossing earlier today after a directive was issued following a situational assessment, Channel 12 reports.

In recent days, a right-wing protest group known as Tzav 9 has been preventing aid from entering the Gaza Strip, but the group was not at Kerem Shalom on Friday, so aid should have been able to enter the Strip without issue.

The report does not say why the decision to stop aid from passing through Kerem Shalom was made and who issued the directive.

COGAT, Israel’s military liaison to the Palestinians, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
