Humanitarian assistance to Gaza since Feb 27 escalation in terror
13 Aug 2008
Ministry of Defense
Unit of Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT)

Total (June 16, 2007 - July 16, 2008):
28,112 trucks; 654,991 tons

The Unit for Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories reports daily on the general humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip. The data for the supplies transferred via the Karni and Sufa crossings are based on the reports of Palestinian merchants.

Two-way traffic at the Erez Crossing of international organizations' staff, Gaza residents seeking medical treatment together with the people accompanying them ("medical evacuations"), and Palestinian civilians  has been permitted for humanitarian reasons since 18 January 2007 and occurs almost daily.

Humanitarian aid includes food, medicines and medical equipment, tools and materials for esssential humanitarian infrastructures, and a certain amount of diesel fuel. Cement, sand, gravel and steel are not considered to be humanitarian aid.

Via the conveyor at the Karni Crossing, hundreds of tons of grain - wheat, barley, soy beans, corn and animal feed - are transferred from Israel to the Gaza Strip every week.

Via the Nahal Oz fuel depot, diesel fuel for transportation and for the local Gaza power station, petrol, and gas for cooking and heating are transferred from Israel to the Gaza Strip, according to an assessment of civilian needs mandated by the Israeli court (weekly supply: petrol - 120,000 liters; diesel fuel for transportation - 1,200,000 liters; diesel fuel for power station - 2,900,000 liters;  cooking and heating gas according to demand).

Via the Sufa Crossing, the following supplies are transferred by truck from Israel to the Gaza Strip: food, including: baby formula and food, rice and legumes, fruits and vegetables, meat, chicken and fish, dairy products, flour and yeast, oil, salt and sugar; hygiene products; tools and raw materials for essential infrastructures; medicines and medical equipment; and a myriad of other items - ranging from school books to wheel chairs - needed by the civilian population.

The Kerem Shalom Crossing has been closed since it was attacked by  terrorists on 19 April 2008.

Usually the crossings are closed on Fridays and Saturdays (the Sabbath).

On June 19, an agreement to establish a "state of calm" in the Gaza Strip and the Israeli territory adjacent to it went into effect. On June 22, following four days of quiet, the amount of merchandise transferred to the Gaza Strip via the Sufa and Karni crossings was increased. The number of trucks that delivered goods via the crossings during the week 22-27 June was 476, compared to 158 the week before and 172 the week before that. The fuel terminal at the Nahal Oz crossing also returned to its previous capacity. Civilians with compelling humanitarian problems continued to enter and leave the Gaza Strip through the Erez crossing. The Kerem Shalom crossing remains closed.

On 24 June, the Palestinians violated the agreement with Israel by launching a mortar bomb and several rockets that landed in Israeli territory. The crossings were temporarily closed. The opening of the crossings and the amounts of goods  allowed to pass through them is conditional on Palestinian adherence to the agreement.
