200 Truckloads of Humanitarian Aid Enter Gaza — Largest Total Since War’s Outbreak
Two hundred trucks of humanitarian aid entered Gaza Friday, November 24, Israel’s military liaison to the Palestinians Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) announced.
This is by far the largest number of trucks to enter Gaza since the outbreak of the war and is a fulfillment of Israel’s commitments to allow in 200 trucks of aid for every day of the temporary truce.
US officials told Israeli media earlier the previous week that they didn’t think Israel would be able to abide by this clause due to the limited aid delivery mechanisms currently in place.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) says that 137 of the trucks have been offloaded by UNRWA workers for distribution. OCHA says one hundred and twenty-nine thousand liters of fuel and four gas trucks also crossed into Gaza Friday.
Hundreds of thousands of people were assisted with food, water, medical supplies, and other essential humanitarian items throughout the day, according to OCHA. “The UN welcomes the release of 24 hostages held in Gaza since October 7 and renews its call for the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages,” OCHA said.
