Israel says it will open new aid routes into Gaza

April 5, 2024 - Israel says it has approved the opening of two humanitarian routes into Gaza, following U.S. demands to increase aid supplies into the territory.

The Erez crossing in northern Gaza will be temporarily re-opened for the first time since the start of the war and Ashdod Port will also be opened for humanitarian deliveries.

More aid from Jordan will be allowed to enter via the Kerem Shalom Crossing.

It comes hours after Joe Biden spoke with Israel's PM for the first time since seven aid workers were killed.

According to a readout of a phone call between the U.S. president and Benjamin Netanyahu, Mr Biden warned that Israel must take steps to prevent civilian harm and humanitarian suffering if it wanted to maintain U.S. support, the BBC said.
