The Israeli Armed Forces have announced that they will take daily tactical pauses in their operations in the southern Gaza Strip to allow for the delivery of more humanitarian aid.

The pause "will be from 08:00 to 19:00 every day until further notice, along the road leading from the Kerem Shalom point to the Salah ad Din road and further north," the Israeli forces said in a statement on the social network X ".

The idea of ​​the pauses is "to increase the volume of humanitarian aid entering Gaza," the Israeli army explained.

The route along which the breaks will be made is located south of the city of Rafah, where the operations of the Israeli forces continue, DPA notes.

According to Israel, Rafah, located in the southern part of Gaza, is the last bastion of the Palestinian Islamist movement "Hamas".

Israel launched its military operation in the Gaza Strip after Hamas militants launched an unprecedented attack on the Jewish state on October 7 last year.
