Palestinian Authority

    Israel has permitted limited aid and fuel deliveries into the Gaza Strip, which it has closed to virtually all supplies for the past three weeks. Gaza’s only power plant, which is in urgent need of spare parts, is to restart at reduced capacity. Shortages and power cuts in the territory have led the UN to describe conditions there as the “worst ever”. Israel says the tightening of the Gaza blockade is a legitimate response to rocket fire by Palestinian militants. Sixty trucks of supplies were scheduled to pass through the Kerem Shalom and Karni crossings on Nov. 26, an Israeli government spokesman said. (BBC)
