The UN said Monday that it will resume aid shipments into Gaza after Hamas returned supplies seized several days ago. Last week, Hamas police broke into a UN warehouse in Gaza and stole thousands of UN blankets, food parcels, and tons of rice and flour, prompting the UN to stop its aid trucks into Gaza. John Ging, Gaza head of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, said Monday that Hamas officials returned the aid, prompting the UN to lift its freeze.
