Israeli authorities denounced that Hamas is blocking the entry of humanitarian aid into northern Gaza. According to the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), a terrorist checkpoint is preventing the passage of trucks transporting water, food and medical supplies. Additionally, the Israeli Prime Minister has visited Gaza for the first time since the war began. Benjamin Netanyahu, who toured one of the terrorist group's tunnels in the city, assured that they will take all the hostages back home and announced that "we will continue until the end, until victory. Nothing will stop us."
This is what happened about an hour ago on the road leading to the northern Gaza Strip:

The publication indicates that events like this demonstrate that "for Hamas, the residents of Gaza are their last priority." In the image shared to illustrate the complaint you can see a long caravan of trucks stuck waiting for permission to continue on their way north.
Netanyahu visits Israeli troops and Hamas tunnels in Gaza
The Israeli prime minister visited Israeli troops in Gaza for the first time since the massacre of more than 1,200 civilians by Hamas terrorists. The Israeli leader toured one of the tunnels discovered by Israeli troops in the city and launched a message of confidence in the release of all the hostages who remain in the hands of the Palestinian group: "“We are making every effort to return our hostages, and at the end of the day we will return every one.”
Furthermore, Netanyahu warned the terrorist group that the war will continue after the ceasefire and the exchange of those kidnapped for imprisoned terrorists:
We have three goals in this war: Eliminate Hamas, return all of our hostages and ensure that Gaza will not go back to being a threat to the State of Israel.
I am here to tell the soldiers, who all tell me the same thing, and I repeat it to you, citizens of Israel: We are continuing until the end – until victory. Nothing will stop us, and we are convinced that we have the force, the strength, the will and the determination to achieve all of our goals for the war, and this is what we will do.

Tanker with ties to Israel hijacked off Yemen coast
The maritime security and intelligence company, Ambrey, has reported the hijacking of a new ship off the coast of Yemen. On this occasion, the tanker, Central Park, from the London-based company Zodiac, was boarded in the Gulf of Aden. So far, no one has claimed responsibility for the action, although, given that the group is owned by Israeli billionaire Eyal Ofer, authorities are considering Israel's war against Hamas as the cause and the Houthi rebels as the attackers.
In a statement, echoed by The Times of Israel, Zodiac reported what it described as a "a suspected piracy incident." In addition, he noted that the vessel was carrying a full load of phosphoric acid. "Our priority is the safety of our 22 crew members on board. The ship, flying the Turkish flag, has a multinational crew made up of Russian, Vietnamese, Bulgarian, Indian, Georgian and Filipino citizens," the note indicated.
