An Israeli has been killed in an attack at a Jerusalem checkpoint by three Palestinian attackers, The Times Of Israel reported. The outlet reported a settlement between Jerusalem and the West Bank Palestinians opened fire at a traffic stop killing one and injuring 11 others.

A post shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, claims to show an extensive video of the aid that has been delivered to Gaza during the conflict with Israel. The video shows clips of trucks with supplies and a narrator with uplifting music played over them.

The caption reads, “11,000 trucks, 140,000 tons of food, 1,000 water trucks, 17,000 tons of medical supplies, 23,000 tons of tents and shelter equipment. Israel will continue to facilitate the transfer of life-saving humanitarian aid to Gaza. Our war is with Hamas, not with the people of Gaza.”
