The Israeli ambassador to the UN in Geneva, Meirav Eilon Shaharassured today that the humanitarian aid entering Gaza will increase from today with the opening of a second security checkpoint for it in Kerem Shalom.
This checkpoint will be added to the only one that existed until now in Nitzana, also close to the border between Israelsouthern Gaza and Egypt.
“This morning we added this controlsecurity checks are needed to guarantee that nothing but food, medicine and water enters,” the ambassador stressed to journalists, during the commemorative events for the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The United Nations negotiated in recent weeks that Israel to open second humanitarian aid access to Gaza through Kerem Shalom, after almost two months in which only the Rafah one has worked, between Egypt and the Palestinian strip.
Eilon Shahar made these statements about humanitarian aid to Gaza after criticize the intervention in the UN commemorative events of the Palestinian Foreign Minister, Riad al Maliki.
“Once again, he has been unable to say a word about Hamas and the atrocities it committed on October 7”lamented Israel’s representative to the UN in Geneva.
“In fact, the Palestinian National Authority has been protecting this terrorist organization for years in the multinational arena,” he said.
Al Maliki took advantage of his participation in the commemorative events to ensure that the international human rights system built in 1948 after World War II “has been broken in Gaza”, by giving “special treatment” to Israel and allowing its atrocious crimes.
“The progress that we thought had been achieved in 75 years is not convincing when schools, markets and hospitals are turned into mass graves, when 8,000 children have been murdered in Gaza and hundreds of thousands more are orphans,” declared the head of Palestinian diplomacy.
