Red Crescent: Israel prevents the entry of aid through the Rafah crossing
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society announced that the Israeli occupation forces prevented the entry of aid through the Rafah land crossing.
The association said in a statement, this evening, Friday, that “the occupation authorities informed the association, organizations, and all entities operating at the Rafah land crossing, preventing the entry of aid trucks from the Egyptian side into the Gaza Strip, starting today until further notice, and that the crossing must be emptied of the trucks on the side.” Palestinians as soon as possible.
The association stressed that "this decision increases the suffering of citizens, and increases the magnitude of the challenges facing humanitarian and relief organizations in alleviating the suffering of citizens and displaced people as a result of the ongoing aggression against the Gaza Strip."
The Israeli occupation resumed its aggression against the Gaza Strip on Friday morning, minutes after the end of the temporary humanitarian truce that lasted for only one week.
During the truce period, trucks of aid were brought into the besieged sector since the start of the aggression on the seventh of last October, but the amount of relief and medical aid and fuel trucks that entered was not sufficient to meet the increasing needs of citizens in light of the humanitarian catastrophe that the sector is witnessing.
