Special Report:   Israel airstrikes in Gaza

The United Nations says Hamas has returned all of the aid supplies that it seized from the agency in the Gaza Strip last week.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency said the return of the supplies cleared the way for it to resume all of its operations in the Hamas-ruled enclave.

The agency had suspended imports of goods on Friday after accusing Hamas of twice seizing aid supplies.

It had accused Hamas of taking blankets, food and other goods from a warehouse and 10 aid trucks.
