Truck loaded with Humanitarian aid began entering the besieged Gaza Strip from the Rafah crossing in Egypt on Saturday.

The relief aid convoy included 20 trucks that carry medicine, medical supplies, and a limited amount of food supplies, Hamas’s media office said.

Seven trucks have begun arriving inside Gaza Saturday afternoon, reported the World Health Organization (WHO).

Supplies included trauma medicines and supplies for 1200 people and 235 portable trauma bags for on-the-spot stabilization of injured patients, the WHO said as it confirmed working with Egyptian and Palestinian Red Crescent Societies to ensure safe passage of supplies.

Egyptian state TV showed trucks that have been waiting for days entering the border crossing area from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

Egyptian media earlier said preparations were underway to open the Rafah crossing to allow the passage of trucks carrying humanitarian aid to Palestinians in Gaza.

Televised footage showed trucks moving towards the crossing in what appeared to be preparation to let trucks carrying humanitarian aid enter Gaza from Egypt. 

Earlier the US Embassy in Israel said the Gaza-Egypt border may open on Saturday, suggesting that such a move would enable foreigners to leave the besieged Palestinian enclave.

In a social media post, the embassy said it had “received info” that the Rafah crossing would open at 10 a.m. (0700GMT). 

“We do not know how long it will remain open for foreign citizens to depart Gaza,” it added.

Israel blockaded the territory and launched waves of punishing airstrikes following the Oct. 7 rampage by Hamas militants on towns in southern Israel.

The lorries had been waiting for days on the Egyptian side after Israel agreed to allow aid to enter following a request from its top ally the United States.
