Currently, the border crossing is impassable, and some trucks carrying aid supplies from Egypt had to turn back.
The IDF had previously closed all the border crossings leading from the Gaza Strip to Israel, and then they called on the people of Gaza to leave for the Rafah border crossing to Egypt. This notice was later withdrawn.
By the way, the border crossing was probably bombed so that Egypt could not provide aid to Gaza. Israel cut off the electricity supply to the region days ago, and yesterday they also cut off the water supply. Egypt wanted to deliver aid supplies to the population, which would have weakened the effectiveness of the Israeli measures.
