Biden said the shipment likely won’t cross until Friday because road repairs are needed at the crossing.

“They are going to patch the road. To get these trucks out, they have to fill potholes. And that’s going to take – they expect it to take about eight hours tomorrow,” he said.

The US President said the first 20 trucks would be a test of the system to distribute aid without benefiting Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist organization that controls Gaza.

The United Nations is ready to distribute aid to the Gaza area of ​​the border.
“If Hamas seizes it or does not allow it to reach them or simply seizes it, it will be over, because if Hamas seizes it we will not send it any humanitarian aid. That is the commitment I have made,” Biden said.
