Mounir el-Barash, director of the donations department in Gaza's Ministry of Health told al-Jazeera that only 30% of the aid sent into the Gaza Strip is used.
Gaza officials also expressed anger at receiving burial shrouds for

Israel eased its blockade in late June, allowing more civilian aid into
the Gaza Strip. Earlier this week, aid from the Libyan flotilla was
reportedly brought to Gaza.
The Defense Ministry’s coordinator of government activities in the
territories (COGAT) also gave initial approval to international

including medical clinics.
