Group of Democratic Senators Call for Israel to Open Its Border for Humanitarian Crossing Into Gaza

A group of Democratic senators urged President Biden on Monday to work with Israel in an effort to convince the country to open its border for humanitarian aid to cross into the Hamas-governed Gaza Strip.

In a letter sent to Biden, the lawmakers asked the administration to work with Israel and its allied partners to implement a plan that will protect civilian life and deliver much-needed humanitarian aid to the war-torn Gaza.

The senators also asked for the Kerem Shalom border, a border crossing between Israel and Gaza, to be reopened “in order to facilitate the proper inspection and delivery of larger quantities of aid and the reopening of this crossing must become part of the humanitarian support plan.”
