Janez Lenarčič, European Commissioner for Crisis Management, who is in charge of humanitarian aid, tweeted this graphic about aid coming into Gaza.

As reported by our humanitarian partners, the access to #Gaza remains severely constrained. Aid is piling up at the borders. Safe and unimpeded access for humanitarians and goods is a matter of life and death. It must be granted at scale to address the ongoing catastrophe. 

The IDF COGAT unit responded with an accurate version:

Here, @JanezLenarcic, we fixed it for you. 

In the future, we'd appreciate it if you don't spread falsehoods about humanitarian crossings.

Perhaps you don't know you shared falsehoods. Perhaps you shared @UN  information and #TheUNCantCount.

The most egregious lie was for Kerem Shalom, where Lenarčič apparently got his numbers from UNRWA, which admits that it is not counting all the trucks, only those meant for the UN. COGAT does not issue detailed daily statistics, unfortunately, but they did specify on June 24 they facilitated 240 trucks through Kerem Shalom and an additional 264 on the 28th. Which is a lot more than 5 per day. 

The EU official claimed 0 trucks through Erez West during that week, but COGAT said there were 47 on the 24th and 51 on the 28th.

This is part of a bigger problem. Political officials and the media are well aware of COGAT  but they simply do not believe what COGAT says, even though it is the only organization that knows every single truck that enters Gaza. They have never disputed specific numbers from COGAT or said they were wrong. Moreover, NGOs meet with COGAT to coordinate activities every day, and they never complained about these figures being wrong.

As we've seen throughout the war, nothing that Jews say is believed without corroboration, but everything Hamas says is repeated without skepticism - unless it is so obviously a lie, in which case they simply don't cover those statements, since they don't want people to think Hamas figures aren't trustworthy.
