Israel’s military released footage of aid trucks entering Gaza from Egypt, delivering diesel and cooking gas through the Rafah crossing. COGAT announced the dispatch of an additional 200 humanitarian aid trucks to international organizations in Gaza, part of a cease-fire involving hostage and prisoner exchanges.

Israel and Hamas extended the cease-fire for two more days, potentially leading to a longer pause in their conflict and further exchanges of hostages and prisoners.

Mediator Qatar said on Monday, Nov. 27, a truce between Israeli and Hamas forces in Gaza had been extended by two days, continuing a pause in seven weeks of warfare that has killed thousands and laid waste to the Palestinian enclave.

Some Gazans were also going home, despite Israel’s government vowing to restart the bombing after the truce is over.

Hamada Abu Gazara’s injured father was transported to Egypt for treatment. His father later died from complications, and Abu Gazara was going home to bury him in Gaza.

“Honestly, first of all, I just want to say that [my father], may he rest in peace, had asked us to take him and bury him in his homeland [Gaza],” Gazara said. “We are attached to our land, because this land is ours. The land of our ancestors… They asked us to take care of it. I hope we will die there.”

Last week’s truce was the first halt in fighting in seven weeks since Hamas attacked Israel, killing 1,200 people and taking about 240 hostages back into Gaza, according to Israeli tallies.

In response to that attack, Israel has bombarded the enclave and mounted a ground offensive in the north. According to Gaza’s Hamas-run government, more than 15,000 Palestinians have been killed and hundreds of thousands displaced.
