Updated October 21, 2023 at 12:30 PM ET

On Saturday morning, twenty trucks of humanitarian aid crossed into Gaza from Egypt through the Rafah border. The trucks were carrying medicine, medical supplies and food.

As the trucks made their way through, hundreds of foreign nationals gathered at the Gaza side, hoping to escape the violence that has beset the Palestinian territory. But by the afternoon, it had become clear that no one would be allowed to leave for now.

We will continue to update this report as the situation evolves.
