At a meeting in Paris, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told her French counterpart Bernard Kouchner on Thursday that there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza, Israel Radio reported. Kouchner condemned the Palestinians for firing rockets at Israel and said that the French truce initiative comes in light of the difficult humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip. Livni noted that Israel was providing 70% of the electricity used in Gaza and had allowed 300 trucks carrying humanitarian aid to enter the Strip. Livni was scheduled to meet with French President Nicolas Sarkozi later on Thursday evening.
