Aid has been entering the Gaza Strip since the first day of the truce (Reuters)

The Palestine Red Crescent announced the departure of a convoy of 61 humanitarian aid trucks from Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip, towards Gaza City and its north.

The convoy is carrying relief and food supplies, drinking water, primary care medicines, and emergency supplies.

The Palestinian Red Crescent added that this convoy is the largest aid convoy to reach Gaza and the north since the beginning of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip 50 days ago.

According to the Red Crescent, the aid that will enter today through the Rafah land crossing will amount to about 200 trucks, including fuel and gas for cooking.

Raed al-Nims, PRCS media director, said the aid would be distributed by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), the World Health Organization (WHO) and volunteers from the Palestine Red Crescent.

The Red Crescent processed and transported humanitarian aid from the Rafah crossing and from the Society's warehouses, accompanied by a number of ambulances and the Society's staff and volunteers.

A group of volunteers from the Society in the governorates of Gaza and the North will receive the convoy and accompany it to distribute aid to citizens in the Gaza Strip.

Red Crescent spokesman Dr. Mohammed Abu Musabeh told Al Jazeera that the priority at this stage is to prepare for the construction of field hospitals.

The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) has reported that the temporary truce agreement with the occupation includes the entry of 200 trucks per day of relief and medical materials to all areas of the Gaza Strip.

She pointed out that 4 fuel trucks will be brought in daily (during the days of the truce), as well as cooking gas to all areas of the Gaza Strip.

It is noteworthy that before the aggression on Gaza, the average need for goods in the Gaza Strip amounted to 500 trucks per day, in addition to the daily need for 400,<> liters of fuel.

The occupation imposed a suffocating embargo on the Gaza Strip, which included preventing the entry of fuel, food and medicine, which exacerbated the humanitarian situation in light of the ongoing aggression since October 7.
