WFP Trucks Deliver Food Assistance To Gaza Via Rafah Crossing

For the first time since the blockade of Egypt’s Rafah crossing started in 2007, a WFP humanitarian convoy successfully crossed from Egypt into the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, Aug. 27.  “The trucks were carrying food parcels to feed 150 thousand people for more than five days,” Sune Kent of WFP Palestine stated, adding “it’s essential for the humanitarian community and for WFP to be able to continue to move food assistance in, through the Rafah corridor.”
