Hamas raids aid trucks, sells supplies

Hamas raided about 100 aid trucks, that Israel had allowed into Gaza. Stole their contents and sold them to the highest bidders.

The terminal activity is coordinated with UNRWA and The Red Cross. After the army had ceased all military activity in Gaza, the Kerem Shalom crossings had been opened to allow in the aid trucks on Monday. Than Hamas opened fire upon the convoy of trucks carrying the supplies.
Similar incidents occurred with trucks carrying fuel.

Hamas operatives have seized control of any supplies passing through the crossings - including those sent by Israel and international organizations.
Reports say Hamas takes a cut out of all aid that arrives, including flour and medicine. Supplies intended to be distributed without gain among the population is seized by the group and sold to the residents, at a profit to the Hamas 'government'.
