CAIRO – 9 June 2024: A source in North Sinai stated Sunday that 171 aid trucks entered Gaza Strip, including eight carrying diesel, through Karam Abou Salem Border Crossing with Israel.

 

The source added that a total of 1,500 aid trucks entered the Strip in the past few days through the same crossing, and that each carried 25 tons of aid. On the other hand, the Israeli authorities disapproved the entry of 29 trucks.

 

The source pointed out that Gaza needs 450-500 aid trucks daily, including six diesel trucks.

 

Extra News reported on Wednesday that Egypt had prepared 350 aid trucks that would enter Gaza Strip through Karam Abou Salem Border Crossing with Israel.

 

The Rafah Border Crossing has been closed since Israel escalated its operations in Gaza, deploying ground troops to Rafah city near the border with Egypt on May 7.

 

Israeli forces took control of the Palestinian side of the crossing, triggering Egypt’s condemnation. Cairo has since refused to coordinate with Israel on aid delivery to Gaza through the crossing.

 

Egypt has restated its unwavering position, emphasizing the requirement for Israeli withdrawal from the Palestinian side of the Rafah crossing as a crucial condition for reopening the crossing.
