Once again, today the I.D.F. supplied medicine and humanitarian aide to the Franciscan fathers in Manger Square.

Similarly, the I.D.F. attempted to assist to deliver medicine and medical equipment to the injured inside of the Church of the Nativity, in evacuating the injured and in removing the bodies.

The I.D.F. approached the International Red Cross with a request to deliver the aide, but its representatives absolutely refused to enter the area of the church.

I.D.F. forces will continue in an effort to deliver medical equipment and humanitarian aide for the Christians in the Church of the Nativity.
