Israel says it won’t block aid reaching Gaza from Egypt

Israel says it “will not thwart” the delivery of food, water and medicine from Egypt for civilians in Gaza as long as this aid does not “reach Hamas”.
The agreement was announced by US President Joe Biden just before he left Israel after visiting the country in a show of support.
Earlier, Biden backed Israel’s strong denial of any involvement in an explosion at a hospital in Gaza, saying it was supported by “data” he had seen from the US defence department.
On Tuesday a huge blast ripped through a crowded area at the Al-Ahli al-Arabi hospital, sparking widespread panic.
Israel was immediately blamed by Hamas but the Israel Defense Forces said the blast was caused by a misfired Palestinian militant rocket.
A range of Arab countries joined Hamas in blaming Israel for the explosion, and some Arab leaders cancelled meetings with Biden.
Israel has carried out heavy bombing across Gaza since the Hamas attacks on 7 October; militants have continued to fire rockets targeting Israel.
