Israel has agreed to allow two fuel trucks a day into Gaza for UN needs, as well as those of water and sewer systems, an Israeli official says.
The war cabinet made the decision based on the recommendation of the IDF and Shin Bet and at the request of US officials.
The action is intended “to enable the minimal maintenance necessary for water, sewer and sanitary systems to prevent pandemics that could spread to the entire area, hurting residents of the Strip as well as our own forces and potentially spreading into Israel as well.”
The official asserts that the move “will offer Israel the necessary diplomatic maneuvering room to eliminate Hamas.”
They add that Israel will be following the delivery of the fuel to ensure it does not reach the terror group.
