Despite coming under extremely heavy rocket fire, Israel has decided to continue sending fuel and electricity to Gaza, the Tazpit News Agency reported.
The IDF’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), announced that trucks were delivering through the Kerem Shalom Crossing, loads of supplies.
94 truckloads containing a variety of goods and 106 tons of gas were delivered on Thursday alone. Some 200 trucks of food and other basics goods and products have traveled through the Kerem Shalom crossing since the start of Operation Protective Edge.
However, materials which may be used by terrorists, such as steel and cement, were not allowed entry into Gaza. The trucks were heavily guarded, as is the Kerem Shalom Crossing, which serves as a high profile target for Hamas attacks.
Only a few days ago, the IDF blew up a terror tunnel that was discovered in the vicinity of the Kerem Shalom Crossing.
