Biden and Netanyahu agree to a ‘continued flow’ of humanitarian aid to Gaza

President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu affirmed in a phone call Sunday that Israel will allow a “continued flow” of humanitarian assistance into Gaza, according to the White House.

During the call, Biden “welcomed the first two convoys of humanitarian assistance since Hamas’s October 7 terrorist attack, which crossed the border into Gaza and is being distributed to Palestinians in need,” according to a readout from the White House. “The leaders affirmed that there will now be continued flow of this critical assistance into Gaza.”

The first two convoys of aid reached Palestinians this weekend, after the border crossing between Egypt and Gaza opened Saturday to allow food and medical assistance into the region. Another convoy of 15 trucks was expected to cross Sunday evening, U.S. Special Envoy for Middle East Humanitarian Issues David Satterfield said Sunday during an interview on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki.”
