Under fire: Israel transfers fuel to Gaza

Israel transferred some 650,000 liters of fuel for the Gaza electric plant through the Kerem Shalom crossing to Gaza during a mortar attack on the crossing, according to a report by journalist Yaniv Kovovitz on Twitter.

17 tank trunks were used to make the delivery. Crossing workers had to flee. Despite the attack, the fuel was transferred almost entirely to Gaza, with the exception of one tanker that returned to the territory of the State of Israel full. Israel had announced that as a result of the escalation, it would close all crossings into Gaza for the transfer of goods, other than fuel, in order to prevent a humanitarian collapse.
