The IDF says that 115 tons of food and water from the barge were offloaded to 12 trucks, which will be distributed in northern Gaza by the World Central Kitchen aid organization.

The IDF confirms the WCK aid boat arrived a short while ago at the Gaza coast after it had undergone a “comprehensive security check.”

In a statement, the IDF says the delivery of the aid is being “carried out in coordination and subject to an agreement with the civilian company.”

“We emphasize that the entry of humanitarian aid does not constitute a violation of the maritime security blockade,” the IDF adds.
