The 21st Century has reached the Kerem Shalom Crossing.

The Defense Ministry has begun to operate a live internet webcam feed to enable viewers to watch live, in real-time, as truckloads of humanitarian aid supplies roll through the Gaza crossing.

The live feed will operate only while the crossings are in operation, according to IDF Major Peter Lerner, spokesman for Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT).

Three cameras are being used to show the points of access and exits of the Kerem Shalom Crossing terminal, where truckloads of basic food commodities, medicines, medical equipment and other supplies cross for deliveries into the region.

"The trucks that go into the region don't necessarily get the coverage time they deserve in the general world media," explained Lerner. "This way, the world can see that the aid is going in."

Lerner told Israel National News that the cameras will continue to operate even if there is an attack on the terminal while the crossing is open. "If the cameras aren't damaged, they will continue to show live coverage of the attack," he said. "If they are damaged, of course… well, that will be a different story."
