The crisis in the Gaza Stripe deepens and deepens beyond the realm of imagination. This time hundreds of trucks with humanitarian aid are stuck on the border crossing between Egipt and Gaza in Rafah.

It is hard to grasp, but there are about 2000 trucks standing in line on the border between Gaza Stripe and Egipt right now. The border crossing is overwhlemed and the trucks with crucial humanitarian aid are still waiting to be able to deliver food and medical gear and stuff.

The Palestinian coordinator of humanitarian aid is accusing Israeli government of deliberetely blocking the trucks with the crucial loads.

NBC News reports on exact list of items being blocked from entering the Gaza Stripe:

Oxygen canisters, water filters, metal forks, over-the-counter painkillers and generators were among the items that Nossair said had prevented trucks from entering Gaza, where a vast majority of the people are displaced and more than 32,000 have been killed, according to local health officials.

The United Nations highest court has ruled that Israeli government has to open the crossings for the humanitarian aid, but they are reluctant to do so, hence the tensions rise even more.

NBC News further reports:

Members of an NBC News team in Rafah saw hundreds of vehicles on the road, as well as some in a parking area and more at a tunnel crossing in Ismailia, roughly four hours and 125 miles from the border crossing. Satellite images from the last week also show trucks on the road and parked near the crossing.
