A US lawmaker tells The Times of Israel that Israeli officials have indicated to them that they will allow food, water and medicine into Gaza after imposing a siege on the enclave, as Israel appears to be gearing up for a ground operation to destroy Hamas.

The US lawmaker clarifies that Israel has not committed to letting in electricity and fuel supplies into Gaza, which are not covered by the same rules under law of armed conflict.
