The entry of fuel and humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip as part of a ceasefire agreement with Hamas was halted after the terror group violated the truce this morning, the Defense Ministry’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories says.
In response to a query by The Times of Israel, COGAT confirms that only dozens of trucks with humanitarian aid entered Gaza today.
The aid included only medicine and food but not fuel, COGAT says.
During the temporary ceasefire, some 200 trucks, including four tankers of fuel and four tankers of cooking gas, entered Gaza each day.
“After the Hamas terror organization violated the agreement and in addition fired at Israel, the entry of humanitarian aid was stopped in the manner stipulated in the agreement,” COGAT says.
COGAT says the trucks that entered Gaza today included only water, food, and medical supplies. The trucks were checked by Israeli authorities at the Nitzana crossing before entering Gaza via Egypt’s Rafah crossing.
