Twenty more aid trucks enter Gaza via Rafah crossing

The fourth batch of aid entered the Gaza Strip through the Rafah land crossing in North Sinai on Tuesday morning.

This latest batch includes 20 trucks loaded with food and humanitarian aid, medicines and medical supplies to the Gaza Strip, according to the head of the Egyptian Red Crescent branch in North Sinai Khaled Zayed.

Zayed added that the Egyptian Red Crescent delivered aid to its Palestinian counterpart, consisting of three trucks from the Abou al-Enein Charitable Association, six trucks from the Egyptian Food Bank, a truck from Resala Organization, a truck from the Mersal Foundation, and nine trucks from the Egyptian Red Crescent.

He said that during the past few days, 55 trucks in total were brought into the Gaza Strip and delivered to the Palestinian Red Crescent.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that the death toll from Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip by Monday, October 23 has reached 5,087 – including 2,055 children and 119 women, while over 15,000 are injured.

The Ministry of Health said it received more than 1,500 reports of missing persons under the rubble, including 800 children.

The Gaza Strip has been subjected to Israeli land, sea and air bombardment since Hamas and other Palestinian factions launched operation “Al-Aqsa Flood” on October 7.

The “Al-Aqsa Flood” was met with the Israeli “Iron Swords” operation, as the Israeli army launched raids on Gaza Strip, which is inhabited by more than two million Palestinians who suffer from deteriorating living conditions, as a result of an ongoing Israeli siege since 2006.

The death toll from the Israeli bombing amounted to about 4,475 dead and more than 14,000 wounded in the Gaza Strip.

On the Israeli side, more than 1,400 people were killed, including 306 officers and soldiers, while Hamas captured more than 200 Israelis.
