Procedimientos burocráticos israelíes demoran la ayuda para Gaza

By Duncan Mil

March 26, 2024 - Naciones Unidas dice que tiene suficientes alimentos en la frontera sur de Gaza para alimentar a los 2,2 millones de personas del enclave, pero los trabajadores de ayuda dicen que enfrentan dificultades causadas por los puntos de control de seguridad de Israel .

Before aid shipments can enter Gaza, they undergo a series of checks by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF. And aid agencies and UN officials say Israeli red tape slows the flow of trucks carrying food supplies.

Israeli officials reject these accusations and say they have increased aid access to Gaza. Israel isn’t responsible for delays in aid getting into Gaza, they say. Israel has also accused Hamas of stealing aid.

The inspection process “isn’t the impediment” to aid “getting into the Gaza Strip,” said Shimon Freedman, a spokesman for COGAT, the Israeli military branch that handles aid transfers.

Under growing international pressure, Israel earlier this month opened a new route for the delivery of aid directly to northern Gaza, known as Gate 96.

By March 20, COGAT said at least 86 international aid trucks had entered via Gate 96.

“There is a sufficient amount of food entering Gaza every day,” said Col. Moshe Tetro, a COGAT official overseeing Gaza.
