More aid delivered into Gaza on second day of humanitarian pause

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs confirms that 61 trucks of aid were delivered to northern Gaza today, the largest number since 7 October. They included food, water and emergency medical supplies. Eleven ambulances, 3 coaches and a flatbed were delivered to Al Shifa hospital to assist with evacuations.

Another 200 trucks were dispatched from Nitzana. Of them 187 entered Gaza by 19:00 local time.

In addition, 129,000 liters of fuel crossed into Gaza.

None of these deliveries would have been possible without the Palestinian and Egyptian Red Crescent Societies.

The longer the pause lasts, the more aid humanitarian agencies will be able to send in and across Gaza.

We welcome the release of more hostages today and renew our call for the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages.

And we hope the release of more Palestinian detainees brings relief to their families and loved ones.
