5,549 trucks carrying 155,312 tons of goods entered Gaza through the Kerem Shalom Crossing in September, according to figures released by the IDF on Sunday.
These included 1,519 truckloads of food products, 1,244 truckloads of construction materials, 64 truckloads of medical equipment, 258 truckloads of livestock and 2,464 truckloads of miscellaneous items.
Hamas, which violently took control of Gaza in 2007, constantly claims that the region is under an Israeli siege because of Israels naval blockade on the region, which is meant at stopping weapons and other materials that can used for terror attacks to enter Gaza.
