Israel to allow two fuel trucks into Gaza daily

Israel’s war cabinet has said it will allow two fuel trucks into the Gaza Strip each day for the UN to continue aid work.
An Israeli official on Friday said fuel will give “minimal” support for water and sewage systems, and will be tracked to make sure it doesn’t reach Hamas.
It comes as the UN agency for Palestinian refugees says any fuel must go “hand-in-hand” with restoring phone lines, warning that otherwise any aid operation is “impossible”.
Meanwhile, Israel says its troops have found the body of a second woman held hostage by Hamas, during a search close to Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza.
Noa Marciano, a 19-year-old soldier, was one of about 240 people kidnapped by Hamas gunmen during the 7 October atrocities, which killed 1,200 people.
Benjamin Netanyahu has admitted Israeli forces have not been “successful” in minimising civilian casualties in Gaza – but blamed Hamas.
More than 11,500 people have been killed in the territory since Israel began its retaliatory strikes, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.
