The UN says it will resume aid shipments into Gaza after Hamas returned supplies seized several days ago. Officials from Hamas took thousands of UN blankets, food parcels, and tons of rice and flour. That prompted the UN to stop its aid trucks into Gaza, fearing Hamas would seize them. 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. The UN is under pressure to show international donors that it is independent of Hamas as it seeks funding to rebuild the territory after Israel's crushing three-week military offensive. The US, EU and Israel label Hamas a terror group.
