More aid trucks containing food and medicine to enter Gaza


Twenty more trucks of humanitarian, medical and food aid will enter the Gaza Strip from Egypt's Rafah border crossing on Thursday.

It's the fifth batch of humanitarian aid to enter the area since the conflict with Israel broke out.

The Egyptian Red Crescent delivered the trucks to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) and the Palestinian Red Crescent, after checks were carried out by Israeli agents at the Al-Auja border crossing.

According to the Ministry of Health in Gaza, more than 6,600 people have died in Gaza and over 17,000 injured since the conflict between Israel and Hamas erupted on October 7.

Palestinian medical and security sources said a series of Israeli attacks targeted a residential area in Gaza's Al-Jalaa and Yarmouk Streets on Wednesday killing dozens and injuring several more. 

The government media office in Gaza said rescue teams, most of them from the Palestinian Civil Defence, are struggling to search for missing people under the rubble amid continuous air strikes, a severe shortage of fuel to operate vehicles and equipment, and limited or no connection to mobile phone networks.
