Israeli military says aid trucks allowed into blockaded Gaza Strip

On Wednesday, the Israeli military said that for the first time since the government authorised the opening of Ashdod Port for aid shipments, food trucks entered the blockaded Gaza Strip.

"Eight World Food Program (WFP) trucks of flour entered the Gaza Strip from the Ashdod Port today," the statement said.

The statement added that the trucks underwent security checks at the port and were then admitted into Gaza through the Israeli-controlled Kerem Shalom crossing.
