Report: Egypt interested in Israel funding humanitarian aid to Gaza

An Egyptian source sent a message that Israel should fund the humanitarian aid to Gaza, Kan News reported Wednesday morning.

  • According to the report, Egypt is not satisfied with the rate at which humanitarian aid is entering Gaza, and has passed Israel and the US messages stating that it may be time for Israel to take on the burden of paying for and transferring Israeli merchandise, purchased by the Israeli government itself, to Gaza.

The vast majority of humanitarian aid brought into Gaza goes directly to Hamas, and does not reach the civilian population.

The source also said that from Egypt’s perspective, Israel is the one responsible for the situation in Gaza.

Egypt also claims that thus far, it has provided 70% of the humanitarian aid transferred to Gaza.
