Despite the heavy bombing of Israeli cities by Hamas Israel is continuing to provide the Gaza Strip with supplies and fuel. The IDF’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) announced that trucks were delivered through the Kerem Shalom Crossing yesterday. 94 truckloads containing a variety of goods and 106 tons of gas were delivered y. Some 200 trucks of foodstuffs and other basics goods and products have traveled through the Kerem Shalom crossing since the start of Operation ‘Protective Edge’. Materials which may be used by terrorists, such as steel and cement, were not allowed entry into Gaza.
The trucks were heavily guarded, as is the Kerem Shalom Crossing, which serves as a high profile target for Hamas attacks. Only a few days ago the IDF blew up a terror tunnel that was discovered in the crossing vicinity.
