Israel will not transfer any humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip and will also prevent any uncontrolled supplies from other countries, the prime minister’s office said on Sunday.
“Israel will not provide any humanitarian aid to Gaza and will prevent any unsupervised supply from others,” the office was quoted as saying by the Haaretz newspaper.
On October 7, Palestinian group Hamas launched a surprise large-scale rocket attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip. Israel launched retaliatory strikes and ordered a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip, home to more than 2 million people, cutting off supplies of water, food and fuel. The blockade was later eased to allow trucks with humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip. The escalation of the conflict has resulted in thousands of people killed and injured on both sides.
