Israel to Deliver Humanitarian Aid to Gaza through Reopened Crossing

Israel's War Cabinet has made the decision to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza by utilizing a reopened crossing on the northeastern side of the Strip, in an effort to bypass Hamas. The aid deliveries will be routed through the old Karni crossing near Kibbutz Nahal Oz, as a means of avoiding the hijacking of aid by Hamas at the previous crossing points. The move comes in response to ongoing protests by Israelis against the aid deliveries, with demonstrators expressing opposition to "feeding Hamas." Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has defended the aid transfers, stating that they are necessary to continue efforts to free hostages and remove Hamas from control of Gaza. The decision to utilize the old Karni crossing for aid deliveries reflects the intention to overcome the challenges posed by Hamas and ensure the delivery of humanitarian assistance to Gaza.
