20-trucks of humanitarian assistance departed from Cilvegozu Border Pass of Reyhanli town of south-eastern province of Hatay.

The assistance includes foodstuff and medical equipment.

Israel on Saturday announces "unilateral ceasefire", but said would not withdraw its troops from Gaza.

The unilateral truce allows Israel to avoid agreeing concessions with the Palestinian group, such as easing the 18-month-old blockade of the Gaza Strip, which has prevented medical aid and basic supplies from reaching the Palestinians.
