Some 25 aid trucks reached the northern Gaza Strip overnight, a sharp increase from the seven trucks that arrived the previous night, an Israeli official says. No looting was reported on either night.

The trucks are entering through Crossing 96, a new gateway into the enclave set up next to Kibbutz Be’eri. They enter after first being checked in Kerem Shalom.

Meanwhile, Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry says 76 Palestinians were killed in the past day, bringing the death toll since October 7 to 32,490. The numbers cannot be verified and do not differentiate between combatants and civilians.
