Israel atrasa ajuda a Gaza

By Duncan Mil

March 26, 2024 - A ONU diz que tem alimentos suficientes perto da fronteira sul de Gaza
para alimentar os 2,2 milhões de pessoas do enclave, mas os funcionários dizem ter dificuldades com os postos de verificação 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.
