Hamas hijacks humanitarian aid in Gaza

Tuesday, January 13, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff

Hamas terrorists on Monday raided 100 humanitarian aid trucks shortly after Israel let them cross into the Gaza Strip, reported The Jerusalem Post.

Instead of reaching the needy of Gaza, the contents of the trucks were confiscated and then auctioned off to the highest bidders.

Israeli military officials told Army Radio that under an agreement they have with the Red Cross and the UN, the trucks are off limits to the Israeli army once they enter Gaza, so there is little Israel can do to stop the Hamas raids.

Frustrating for most Israelis is the fact that while it is Hamas that created the current war conditions and is preventing aid from reaching the people of Gaza, the Red Cross and the UN continue to blame Israel for the situation.
