Israel resuming attack in Gaza halts humanitarian aidtext_fields
Gaza: Israel's resumption of attacks on the Gaza Strip has stopped the supply of humanitarian aid from Egypt, reports IANS, citing the Palestinian Media Office.
The media office at the Rafah crossing said in a statement late on Friday that "Gaza did not receive any aid trucks today after the temporary humanitarian ceasefire, which lasted for a week, ended."
Lynn Hastings, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for the Occupied Palestinian Territory, called on all parties to protect civilians and ensure aid workers' access to provide assistance throughout Gaza, reports Xinhua news agency.
She said on her X platform that "aid and the release of hostages must continue unconditionally, and the UN will remain present, continuing to provide food, water, medical assistance, and other vital supplies to save lives."
The temporary humanitarian ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, initially lasting four days and extended twice for three days, ended on Friday morning with Israel resuming its attacks on various areas in the Gaza Strip.
Israel resumed attacks, alleging that Hamas violated ceasefire agreements. Israel alleged that Hamas fired into their state, breaking the truce agreement, and thus, the seven-day ceasefire ended.
"Hamas violated the operational pause and, in addition, fired toward Israeli territory. The IDF has resumed combat against the Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza," Israel Defense Forces (IDF) stated on X.
Humanitarian operations within Gaza have largely halted, except for services within shelters and limited distributions of flour in areas south of Wadi Gaza.
The evacuation of wounded people and dual nationals to Egypt and the return of Gazans stranded in Egypt have also stopped.
