Israel Allows Humanitarian Aid into Gaza

March 2, 2008

Recognizing the impending humanitarian crisis facing Gaza, Israel allowed 62 trucks carrying medical supplies and humanitarian aid into the Gaza strip.

Among other things, the supplies included thousands of blood units, one million gauzes, and basic food.

Israel also allowed 7 trucks carrying oil, 7 trucks carrying sugar, and 9 trucks of dairy products, and four trucks with fish and meat.

Israeli security forces have made it clear that in spite of the fighting going on in the Gaza strip, there is no intention of allowing a humanitarian crisis to unfold, and medical and humanitarian aid will continue to be delivered to Gaza.

I’m happy to read that in the midst of the warfare, Israel has not lost site of the fact that those who are attacking us (close to 30 rockets have been launched today at Sderot, Ashkelon, and other towns in the Negev) are the minority in their community: Just like the innocent people of the Negev, one can assume that the majority of the Palestinians just want to live their lives.

One would hope, at least.
