Security cabinet to meet today after US pressure, will mull doubling fuel to Gaza — reports

The security cabinet will convene at 7:30 p.m. today, instead of in four days as originally planned, Hebrew media reports.

Some reports say the change was prompted by US pressure for concessions on aid to Gaza and related issues, with the ministers expected to discuss allowing more fuel and humanitarian assistance into the Strip, as well as allowing Palestinian laborers back into Israel for work.

Reports say Washington has demanded doubling or even tripling the daily amount of Fuel allowed into Gaza, which currently stands at 60,000 liters.
