Even as Hamas continues its terrorist actions and fires rockets towards Israel, the IDF continues to transfer goods to Gazans.

On Sunday, the IDF transferred 186 truckloads of food, medical supplies, fuel and other goods into Gaza via the Kerem Shalom border crossing.

Hamas has for years claimed that Israel is imposing a “siege” on Gaza, yet Israel consistently allows humanitarian aid and other materials into the coastal territory.

Israel has approved hundreds of internationally funded and monitored projects in Gaza, and Hamas has “returned the favor” by building dozens of terror tunnels which lead from Gaza into Israeli communities.

As part of the IDF's commitment to minimizing civilian casualties, it has set up a field hospital capable of advanced medical treatment and which treats Gazans who are hurt during Operation Protective Edge as they are used as human shields by Hamas.
