Four tankers of fuel and four tankers of cooking gas entered the Gaza Strip for United Nations humanitarian aid organizations this morning, the Defense Ministry’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) says.

The trucks entered the southern part of the Strip via Egypt’s Rafah border crossing.

COGAT says the delivery is “with the approval of the political echelon, within the framework of the truce and the schedule for the release of the hostages agreed upon with the US, mediated by Qatar and Egypt.”

“The fuel and cooking gas are intended for operating essential humanitarian infrastructure in the Gaza Strip,” it adds.
