1. MAIN ISSUES
Jerusalem-Gaza Logistics Cluster: On 24 March, the Logistics Cluster organised a visit to Kerem Shalom border crossing for Logistics Cluster participants to become familiar with procedures for cargo transfer from Israel to Gaza. Representatives from Mercy Corps International, CHF International, MSF Spain, Oxfam, Save the Children, USAID, UNFPA, UNICEF, WFP and the Logistics Cluster were shown around the crossing and briefed by IDF CLA and civilian MoD staff. A summary of the visit will be posted on the Logistics Cluster website.

3. INTERACTION WITH COGAT
4. PRIORITIES FOR IMPROVING DELIVERY OF HUMANITARIAN RELIEF TO GAZA
- Double-stacking pallets on trucks passing through Kerem Shalom
- Installation of better lighting at the Kerem Shalom crossing (Gaza side) to allow operations to continue after dark and thus increase the timeframe for cargo pick-up
