At 7 on Saturday morning, the second day of the truce in Gaza kicked off, according to Cairo News.

A number of Palestinians who are willing to cross the Rafah Border Crossing to Gaza are getting ready to cross to the Palestinian side.

On the other hand, a number of fuel trucks have entered the Gaza Strip, while various aid trucks are expected to enter the strip later this day.

Palestinian media outlets reported that a number of clashes between Israelis and Palestinians have erupted in Jenin. A young Palestinian man was injured by gunfire, and an Israeli drone was dropped during the clashes. 

Yesterday, the first temporary humanitarian truce between Hamas and Israel entered into force on Friday in the Gaza Strip.

Confirming the truce agreement had taken effect, Diaa Rashwan, chairman of Egypt's State Information Service (SIS), said in a statement that 130,000 liters of diesel and four trucks of gas from Egypt will enter the Gaza Strip daily.

Some 200 trucks, loaded with food, medicine and water, can enter daily for the first time since the start of the war on Oct. 7, he said.

Egypt will continue to receive wounded and injured children from Gaza for treatment in Egyptian hospitals, helping foreigners and dual nationals detained in the Gaza Strip travel to their own countries, the SIS's chairman said.

He added that the Egyptian side will also allow the entry of Palestinians stranded in the country into the Gaza Strip at their will.
