Turkish aid organization Kizilay (Red Crescent) sent eight trucks load of food materials and medicine to Gaza on Wednesday.

The trucks left Istanbul early in the morning.

The eight trucks constituted the fourth group of trucks sent by the Red Crescent to Gaza as humanitarian assistance, reported Anadolu agency.

Israel launched on Dec. 27 a massive offensive in Gaza, killing more than 1300 Palestinians, a third of them children, and wounded at least 5300.

Israel targeted hospitals, schools, mosques and government buildings and destroyed infrastructure system in Gaza, lefting Palestinians without electricity, gas and power.

Hamas wants Israel and Egypt to reopen all Gaza's border crossings so that people and goods can move freely. Gaza has been under heavy blockade for most of the time since Hamas took power there in June 2007.

Gazans live under heavy Israel siege for a long time and Egypt still insists on not to opening the only Gaza border crossing in a move condemned by Muslims around the world in protests, leaving Gazans desperate to digging tunnels underground and risking their lives.
