Limited aid trucks would cross from Egypt to Gaza, marking the first relief since Hamas attacks in October. Gaza faced a military blockade, leading to urgent appeals for food, water, fuel, and medicine.
UN official Martin Griffiths called the situation dire, with thousands dead and injured. Israel expressed concerns about aid diversion to Hamas.
After negotiations with Egypt, Biden arranged for approximately 20 trucks to enter, with more possible if all parties agree. Israel stated aid would include food, water, and medicine, but the UN estimated a need for 100 trucks daily.
Biden’s visit to Israel aimed at understanding the conflict’s dynamics and preventing regional spillover. He cautioned Israel to act cautiously, recalling US post-9/11 experiences.
The situation heightened tensions, leading to protests across various cities. An airstrike on Gaza’s Ahli Arab hospital resulted in deaths, with disputes over responsibility.
Biden and the Pentagon believed it was an errant Palestinian rocket, while some were skeptical. Eyewitnesses described a devastating scene with bodies at hospitals.
The Israeli military cited fire damage and a lack of a large impact crater as evidence of a rocket misfire. Hamas rejected this claim and accused the US of complicity in the Gaza strikes.
