"Siege" news: Wood and aluminum for Gaza

Palestine Press Agency and Ma'an report that Israel plans to resume shipments of wood and aluminum to Gaza, with the first shipment of wood scheduled for Thursday.

It is unclear whether that this is related to Hamas' recent reported actions to stop other terror groups from attacking Israel, or rather if this is in response to US pressure.

Another news item says that Hamas has allowed its own government engineers to visit Israel to learn more about maintenance and repair for Gaza's waste treatment plants. Hamas denied the story as just more rumors meant to destroy its reputation.
