IDF forces together with police officers on Sunday. prevented demonstrators from blocking the Kerem Shalom Crossing and preventing the entry of aid trucks into the Gaza Strip

Demonstrators, including families of hostages, gathered at the Kerem Shalom Crossing after they blocked it last week, preventing the entry of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.

When soldiers and officers blocked the protesters, the latter attempted to get around the roadblocks to reach the crossing.

While the demonstrators were being held off by the officers, several aid trucks managed to enter the Gaza Strip. The demonstrators eventually reached the crossing and blocked it.

The Tzav 9 movement, which organizes the demonstrations, stated that it "congratulates the decision to block, but instead of implementing it against the families of the hostages and soldiers, it should be implemented against the murderous Hamas terror organization which receives oxygen to continue fighting us from these trucks.

"Our struggle will continue with full determination, without any violence against our dear security forces. No aid will pass until the last of the hostages return."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday during a press conference mentioned the demonstrators, among whom are families of hostages and bereaved families, who blocked the Kerem Shalom crossing to prevent the passage of aid trucks, and stated: "Without minimum humanitarian aid we will not be able to complete the mission and the war's goals. According to him, "The Chief of Staff ordered to deal with the roadblocks since we need to ensure this minimum supply."

Tzav 9 responded to the Prime Minister's statement against the roadblocks: "Hundreds of supply trucks entering the Gaza Strip every day - immediate supply and air for the murderous Hamas terror organization. We understand that there is heavy pressure on the Prime Minister to open the Kerem Shalom Crossing, our job as a nation is to press for the opposite."
