Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - GAZA STRIP - Hamas operatives stole contents from 100 humanitarian aid trucks Monday and resold the products to Gaza residents, The Jerusalem Post reported.

It's not the first time Hamas has pilfered humanitarian aid, but the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) has no control over the transfer of goods, which is coordinated through the Red Cross and UNRWA, Israel Radio said.

On Monday, the Kerem Shalom and Karni border crossings were opened for the three-hour "humanitarian corridor" between 9:00 a.m. and noon, which has been observed daily since it began last week.

During this time, Gaza residents pick up food, medicine and other household goods from distribution centers supplied by the aid trucks.

The IDF ceases all military activities to facilitate the transfer.

On Monday, Hamas operatives fired a Grad missile on Ashkelon during the break, which damaged a home. Seven people were treated for shock.

Since the beginning of Operation Cast Lead, 800 trucks have delivered more than 17,000 tons of food and medical supplies to Gaza residents.
