Egypt’s President Al-Sisi Accuses Israel of Blocking Delivery of Aid to Gaza

Hunger has gripped Gaza communities 110 days after Israel launched its military onslaught.

By late December, more about one-fourth of the enclave’s households were experiencing extreme hunger.

1.9 million individuals, including men, women, and children, or almost 85% of the population, have been forced to evacuate their homes.

Egypt’s president accused Israel of obstructing aid delivery for political reasons on Wednesday (Jan. 24), as he observed Police Day in Cairo.

Egypt borders Gaza in the east.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi stated that the Rafah crossing is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and thirty days a month.

“But the processes used by the other side from Israel to give aid are what creates a scenario like this, and it is their way of putting pressure on the (Gaza) Strip and its people as a result of the prolonged conflict, such as hostage release. “They are using this to put pressure on the people there.”

According to the United Nations humanitarian agency, Israel allowed only three out of 21 delivery of food, medication, and other life-saving supplies to northern Gaza between January 1 and January 10.

The military onslaught began after the October 7 attacks currently focuses on Gaza’s south.
