Eight ships carrying hundreds of activists are making their way through the Mediterranean towards Gaza. The ships, which were organized by the Turkish group IHH together with other leftist European organizations, are said to be on an “aid” mission.
But Colonel Moshe Levi, commander of the Gaza District Coordination Office, told reporters that there is no shortage of food or equipment in the Hamas-ruled territory. Currently, Israel allows 100 trucks to enter Gaza each day. In the last few months these trucks have delivered over 1,200 tons of medicine and medical eqiupment, 155 tons of food, 2,900 tons of clothes and footwear, and approximately 3.85 million gallons of deisel oil.
It is clear that if there is a humanitarian crisis in Gaza, it’s not because of Israel. The “aid mission” on its way to Gaza seems to have a political agenda, not a humanitarian one.
