Despite continued firing of Kassam rockets at the Negev by Palestinian terrorists on Tuesday, Defense Minister Ehud Barak will allow a shipment of food and humanitarian supplies to residents of the Gaza Strip on Wednesday. Barak made the decision in response to calls from the international community regarding the humanitarian situation in the Strip. Basic food, medicine, petrol and cooking gas will be transferred to Gaza through the Karni and Kerem Shalom crossings. Five Egyptian trucks containing humanitarian supplies will also be allowed passage into the Strip, an initiative of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's wife, Suzanne Mubarak.
