US aid to GazaThe U.S. military will facilitate the first of three relief flights into Egypt on Tuesday to get food, water medicine and winter items to Gaza as the Biden administration expands humanitarian efforts during the temporary cease-fire.

The delivery of additional aid, which senior U.S. officials confirmed in a call with reporters, comes amid a two-day extension of a pause in fighting between Israel and Hamas. The United Nations will take the goods that arrive in Egypt to civilians in need in Gaza, officials said.

More than 2,000 trucks of humanitarian aid have entered Gaza since Oct. 21, including 800 trucks in just the last few days while fighting temporarily halted as part of a deal between Israel and Hamas to release hostages held in Gaza.
