An Israeli diplomatic source stated that Israel is expected to soon broaden the scope of humanitarian aid that is being delivered to the Gaza Strip, Kan Reshet Bet reported on Monday.

The source explained that the allowance of aid is vital for the war's international legitimacy, which allows it to continue.

According to the report, the decision was made in light of an American request and was agreed on during the visit of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken last Thursday.

According to Israeli officials, the aid increase is being delayed by logistical obstacles. "The moment it is possible to check more, we will let more in."

In an interview with the German newspaper Welt last week, Prime Minister Netanyahu discussed his decision to transfer funds from Qatar to Gaza and said that his goal was to prevent a humanitarian collapse in Gaza.

"We wanted to avoid disease, rampant hunger, and other things. That's the reason the Israeli government, over the years, allowed these funds in. We didn't at all wish to strengthen Hamas; we wanted to weaken it," Netanyahu stated.
