As Israel continues its assault on Gaza, there’s rising concern over humanitarian situations within the besieged enclave.
Earlier than the Israel-Hamas battle, greater than 500 help vehicles entered Gaza day by day by way of the Karem Abu Salem crossing with Israel and the Rafah crossing with Egypt.
These deliveries halted when Israel imposed an entire blockade on October 7 after Hamas carried out assaults on southern Israel.
Israel has quickly reopened the route by way of Karem Abu Salem, referred to as Kerem Shalom by Israel, to permit in additional humanitarian help.
A minimum of 24 vehicles have been allowed by way of – however the deliveries are far in need of fulfilling the wants of two.3 million Palestinians in Gaza.
Ought to the USA, a staunch ally of Israel, be doing extra to assist the Palestinians? And the way complicit is Washington within the humanitarian disaster that has unfolded?
