The IDF allowed dozens of truckloads of aid to enter the Gaza Strip on Wednesday morning, including diesel for Gaza's struggling power plant, Hamas-affiliate Al Resalah reported.

Some 180 truckloads of "trade and agricultural goods" passed through the Kerem Shalom crossing, along with 5 truckloads of fuel for "generating electricity," said the chairman of Gaza's Import Committee, Raid Fatouh.

Israel will also pump in "limited amounts of cooking gas, as well as industrial diesel for the power plant."
