Israel says it has given the UN permission to build 1,200 new homes in Gaza in a first step in housing the territory's tens of thousands of displaced families.

The dwellings will aid communities whose homes were destroyed by Israel as long ago as 2003, and who have been living in makeshift housing. Now they are calling on the UN to do more.
