Representatives of the Tzav 9 movement have reported that activists have once again managed to block the Kerem Shalom border crossing to prevent trucks carrying humanitarian aid from entering the Gaza Strip.

The protest participants intend to keep the checkpoint closed for the rest of the day.

Tzav 9, along with relatives of those held hostage by Hamas, are protesting against the humanitarian aid deliveries to the Gaza Strip because Israeli hostages remain in captivity.
