The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) allowed a convoy of 19 trucks to cross from Jordan into Israel and then into the Gaza Strip on Monday to resupply a Jordanian hospital there.

The convoy crossed into Gaza through the Erez Crossing and included medical supplies, food and medical teams. COGAT also coordinated the transfer of building supplies that will be used to expand the hospital by 300 sqm.

The Jordanian hospital was established in the Gaza Strip during Operation Cast Lead in January 2009.
