Israeli defense officials say they have agreed to allow fuel shipments into the Gaza Strip for humanitarian operations.

It is the first time that Israel has allowed fuel into the besieged territory since the Hamas terror group’s bloody cross-border invasion on October 7.

COGAT, the Israeli defense body responsible for Palestinian affairs, announces early this morning that it will allow UN trucks to refill at the Rafah crossing on the Egyptian border later today. It says the decision is in response to a request from the US. But it gives no details on when the shipments are to be delivered, other than to say it’s allowing 24,000 liters (6,240 gallons) of fuel into Gaza.
