COGAT, the Coordinator for Government Activities in the Territories, says that 14,320 tons of humanitarian aid have entered the Gaza Strip since the beginning of the war.

“There is no limit to the amount of food, water and medical equipment that can enter Gaza,” COGAT says. “We invite the international community to coordinate and we will facilitate.”

While aid has trickled into the Strip, humanitarian organizations say it is nowhere near enough.

Israel says Hamas has stockpiles of fuel and supplies that it is keeping from an increasingly desperate civilian population.
