Israel says it will allow two trucks of fuel a day into Gaza - BBC News

Israel says it will allow two fuel trucks a day to enter the Gaza Strip, after pressure to do so from the US.

A US State Department official says around 140,000 litres of fuel will be allowed in every two days.

Most of that is intended for trucks delivering aid, as well as supporting the UN in providing water and sanitation, the official said.

The rest is for mobile phone and internet services, which had been cut off due to a lack of fuel.

But aid agencies have also warned that this is nowhere near enough to run their humanitarian operations, amid growing fears of people starving as they desperately search for food.
