WASHINGTON — The US State Department says that 50 aid trucks entered Gaza on Sunday, describing this as “not nearly enough,” and says it believes more can be done to help US citizens leave the embattled coastal enclave.

“We’ve seen 50 trucks enter Gaza on May 12. This is not nearly enough,” US State Department spokesman Vedant Patel says of aid flows since Israel seized the Rafah Crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip on May 7.
