The United States says it is asking Israel to let more fuel into the battered Gaza Strip, following the end of a temporary truce.

“We’ve made clear we want to see it back up not just to the level of fuel that went in during the pause, but actually higher,” State Department spokesman Matthew Miller tells reporters.

For weeks, Israel refused to allow any fuel to enter the Strip after the outbreak of the war, before then relenting. As part of the week-long truce deal, regular fuel shipments were allowed in, which aid agencies said was not nearly enough.
