    Food running out in Gaza

    According to this article, from the Scotsman, food supplies are running low in Gaza, after Israel closed a crossing point:

    Palestinians claim the closure for a total of 46 days this year - more than three times as many as last year - is a "collective punishment" following Hamas's victory in the January legislative elections.

    There were reports last night that the United States had brokered an arrangement whereby emergency relief supplies would flow into Gaza from Egypt.

    Israel has offered that Palestinians use an alternative crossing, at Kerem Shalom, to bring in supplies.

    But the Palestinians say agreeing to that would mean allowing Israel to nullify a signed agreement brokered by Washington specifying that Karni is the transit point for goods to and from Israel.
