The IDF is preventing volunteers from giving food and water to a group of African migrants that has spent the past five days huddled against the western side of the Israel-Egypt border fence, within Israeli territory but unable to enter the country.

Physicians for Human Rights Israel said that when they arrived around midnight Tuesday at the stretch of the fence near Kadesh Barnea they were sent away by IDF troops who showed them a warrant issued the night earlier ruling the area a closed military zone.
