At least 33 aid trucks entered Gaza on Sunday, says UN

The UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Ocha, released an update report saying that on Sunday, at least 33 trucks carrying humanitarian supplies entered Gaza via the Rafah crossing with Egypt.

"This is the largest delivery of humanitarian aid since 21 October, when limited deliveries resumed. While this increase is welcome, a much larger volume of aid is needed on a regular basis to prevent further deterioration in the dire humanitarian situation, including civil unrest," Ocha said in its statement.

The UN agency added that fuel must be allowed to enter the besieged enclave.

In its update, Ocha also noted that more than 1.4 million people in Gaza have been internally displaced as a result of Israel's bombing campaign, and around 671,000 are currently sheltering in 150 UN facilities.
