The Foreign Ministry arranged a trip for foreign diplomats on Thursday to the Kerem Shalom crossing into Gaza to show them the convoy of aid trucks that enter the Strip daily.

"The only people impeding the transfer of goods into Gaza are the Palestinians," said deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon at the event.

He added that over 10,000 tons of food enters Gaza every day as compared to 25,000 tons that enters Israel itself.

Ayalon also told the foreign diplomats assembled at the crossing that "the only humanitarian crisis in Gaza was that of Gilad Schalit. There are no [humanitarian] shortages in the Strip."
