Humanitarian aid trucks have started to cross into Gaza under a fresh agreement with Egypt following Israeli control over the Palestinian side of the Rafah crossing earlier this month. 

Egypt’s state-run Al-Qahera TV broadcasted footage showing aid trucks moving into Gaza via the Kerem Shalom crossing. According to Khaled Zayed, head of the Egyptian Red Crescent in the Sinai Peninsula, approximately 200 aid trucks and four fuel trucks were expected to enter Gaza on Sunday.

For weeks, Egypt has held back on the reopening of its side of the Rafah crossing until Palestinians regain control of their side (which Israel is refusing to agree to). With this new deal, Egypt has decided to move aid through Israel’s Kerem Shalom crossing following discussions between President Biden and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. 

This development comes as various organizations have warned about the scarcity of humanitarian aid entering Gaza. Currently, over a million people have been displaced, and aid organizations are sounding alarms over a growing famine in the region.
