GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of truckloads of food and goods destined for Gaza remained stranded Monday on the Israeli side of the Kerem Shalom crossing, the Popular Front Against the Siege said.
Among the goods are infant formula, medicine, and goods destined for UNRWA, as well as agricultural and commercial goods, a statement issued by the group's border monitoring unit read.
The goods have been stranded on the Israeli side for four days, the group said, warning that prolonged exposure to heat may cause the goods to expire.
Israel shut down all border crossings into the Gaza Strip on Friday after a rocket landed in the Negev.
