The first aid convoy has crossed into the besieged Gaza Strip through the Rafah crossing. A minute amount of aid which includes medicine, medical equipment, and food is being allowed in. But it’s not enough for the more than two million Palestinians who live in the besieged enclave and who have been facing two weeks of relentless US sponsored Israeli terrorism. The allowing of aid is also seen as ploy by the Zionist entity and its Western backers to mislead the public that its resolving the catastrophic humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
Gaza’s government media office has made it clear that the Rafah crossing must be permanently open so that all essential supplies can reach the people who have been under a nearly 17-year-old blockade.
