Trucks loaded with humanitarian aid entered war-torn Gaza from Egypt via the Rafah border crossing on Saturday.
Twenty trucks from the Egyptian Red Crescent, which is responsible for delivering aid from various UN agencies, entered the Egyptian terminal. Four ambulances, two UN vehicles and two Red Cross vehicles were also seen heading into the Rafah crossing terminal.
Egyptian state television showed several trucks entering the gate on the 15th day of the war between Israel and Hamas to help out the 2.4 million population residing in Gaza. Israel is bombing Gaza since Hamas’ bloody surprise attack of October 7.
Declaring a total siege on Gaza, Israel has cut off supplies of water, electricity, fuel and food.
Israel agreed to allow aid into Gaza from Egypt following a request from the United States.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday visited the Egyptian side of the crossing to oversee preparations for the aid delivery.
