According to the ERC, the aid consisted of 102 trucks carrying food, water, relief supplies, medicines, and medical equipment.

The Red Crescent indicated that they have delivered a total of 241 trucks of urgent aid to the Gaza Strip so far.

In a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter, the CEO of the ERC, Rami El-Nazir, stated that the stock of aid coming from around the world for Gaza is on the verge of running out. 

El-Nazir urged everyone to continue supporting the critical humanitarian campaign for Gaza.

Earlier on Thursday, The World Health Organization denounced the lack of safety guarantees to aid convoys inside Gaza, saying it was nearly impossible to get medical supplies to hospitals.

The WHO said the health needs in the strip are soaring while its ability to meet them is plunging.

Since 7 October, Israeli airstrikes in Gaza have killed more than 9,061 people, including 3,760 children, and wounded more than 22,000 according to the Palestinian health ministry.
