“NIn recent weeks, the amount of aid in Gaza has increased significantly. In the coming days, it will continue to increase further,” said army spokesman Daniel Hagari.

This increase, he stated, is due to “the increased efforts” that have been made in recent weeks, such as the opening of the port of Ashdood, in the south of the country, and also the opening of a new crossing in the north of Gaza.

“We have increased the amount of aid coming from Jordan through the Kerem Shalom crossing,” the army spokesman added.

On the other hand, he confirmed that Israeli forces continue to work together with the US Central Command to build a temporary sea pier, with the aim of establishing another route to bring aid to the population of Gaza.

For months, human rights organizations have accused Israel of transforming “hunger into a weapon of war”, stating that blockades continue to occur at border posts and that part of this aid does not reach the north of the enclave, where at least 300,000 people are exposed. the hunger.

The army also reported on Sunday afternoon that its troops last night began several “defensive and offensive” missions in the Palestinian enclave to locate and “destroy” Hamas infrastructure.

More than 34,000 people have already died in the war that Israel launched in the Gaza Strip, in retaliation for the attack, on October 7, 2023, by the Islamist movement Hamas on Israeli territory, which left 1,163 dead and 250 hostages, of which more than 100 remain in captivity and 34 have since died, according to the most recent report by Israeli authorities.

The conflict has also left almost two million people displaced, plunging the Palestinian enclave into a serious humanitarian crisis, with more than 1.1 million people in a “situation of catastrophic hunger” that is claiming victims – “the highest number ever recorded” by the UN in studies on food security in the world.
