‘Terror and confusion’ with no aid getting into Gaza, charity says – as another crossing shuts

The Israel Defence Forces has confirmed that the other major border crossing into Gaza – the Erez crossing – has also been shut. 

As we reported earlier, the Kerem Shalom and Rafah crossings are also closed. 

Major humanitarian agency ActionAid is reporting that no aid is currently able to get into Gaza.

“We are gravely concerned that the intensified attack on Rafah has led to the closure of all aid routes into Gaza,” a spokesperson said.

“No humanitarian relief is getting in, creating a dire situation for the 2.2 million people already struggling with starvation, disease and a severe lack of medical support.”
