The Israeli occupation resumed its aggression in the Gaza Strip on Friday at 07.00, just minutes after a six-day humanitarian ceasefire.

The ceasefire allowed for the first time since the start of Israel’s aggression on the Gaza Strip on October 7  the entry of trucks of humanitarian aid and aid. However, the number of aid trucks and fuel is not enough to meet the increasing needs of civilians considering the current humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip. (T/RE1/P2)
