Egypt is allowing trucks loaded with humanitarian aid to enter its border crossing with the Gaza Strip. Trucks filled with food and medical supplies have been lining up outside the Egypt-Gaza border since early morning. Border guards opened the Rafah terminal Monday afternoon and started allowing several trucks to enter. Mustafa Ismail, an organizer with a Cairo-based charity, says the trucks are allowed to drop off the supplies in the border terminal but may not enter Gaza.
