WATCH: Aid convoys enter into Gaza amid intensifying war

Humanitarian aid trucks arrived in Gaza from Egypt over the weekend carrying food, water and medical supplies as the war between Israel and Hamas entered its second week. They are the first convoys to enter Gaza since the war began on Oct. 7. Israel is not allowing fuel to enter the Gaza Strip, and aid organizations say they will run out of fuel for its deliveries in the coming days. About 30 trucks are entering the crossing each day, but around 100 trucks daily would be needed to meet the needs of Gaza residents, according to U.N. officials.
