Israel to take Gaza wounded in for treatment, open crossings
Yaakov Katz
Thirty humanitarian aid trucks were set to pass into the Gaza Strip throughout Sunday, as Israel continued its strikes on Hamas. Defense officials said the the number of trucks was decided upon in coordination with international aid groups. Israel also plans to allow some Palestinians wounded in Saturday's offensive on Hamas to enter Israel to receive medical treatment. Officials said the decision to open the crossings and offer assistance to the wounded was part of Israel's effort to create international legitimacy for its continued operations against Hamas.
