The Chief of the Israeli Mossad thanked Egypt's General Intelligence Service Chief, CIA Director, and the Qatari Prime Minister for their efforts during the negotiations of the humanitarian truce in Gaza, the Office of the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Saturday.

On November 24, the first temporary humanitarian truce between Hamas and Israel entered into force 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, entered daily for the first time since the start of the war on Oct. 7, he said.

Egypt continued 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.

The efforts of Egypt, US, and Qatar managed to extend the truce for an extra two days, and an additional day, before its collapse on Friday.
