Israel says it has agreed to set up a "humanitarian corridor" to ship vital supplies to the people of the Gaza Strip. The office of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said in a statement that the humanitarian corridor idea came from the UN Security Council, and he accepted it. Under the plan, Israel would suspend attacks in specified areas of Gaza to allow the people to get supplies. The statement early Wednesday said the goal was to "prevent a humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip." Israel insists it has allowed enough supplies into the territory during 11 days of conflict, but the UN says there is already a humanitarian crisis there because of shortages of food, fuel and medicine.
