Humanitarian aid keeps arriving in Gaza Strip with coordination of int’l organizations

Trucks with life-saving humanitarian aid have kept arriving in the Gaza Strip from Egypt through the Rafah border crossing as the initial four-day truce between Israel and Hamas was extended for another two days on Tuesday.

On Tuesday afternoon, a convoy of 50 trucks were lining up at the Rafah border crossing, waiting to enter the Gaza strip. These trucks, escorted by the staff from the Palestinian Red Crescent Society and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, were heading directly to the northern Gaza.

Since last Friday, more humanitarian aid has been allowed into the Palestinian enclave after 48 days of Israeli's siege and airstrikes.

But for the Gazan residents, the amount of the humanitarian aid which has arrived is far from adequate.

With many roads in the northern Gaza destroyed or damaged, the aid delivery there is impeded.

As the Palestine-Israel conflict drags on into the second month, the Rafah border crossing, the only crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip, has become a “life passage” for the Gazans trapped in the besieged enclave.

“With the coordination of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, more than 200 trucks with humanitarian aid will enter the Gaza Strip through the Rafah border crossing and deliver [the humanitarian relief items]. One thing to know is that despite the severe shortage of medical supplies and the service suspension from the public health system, our staff of the Red Crescent Society in northern Gaza are still providing first aid and treatment,” said Muhammad Abu Musabih, a spokesman of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society.
