Gaza awaits changes brought by truce

Level of need still high even as aid supplies are beginning to makes their way to battered enclave.

    More aid supplies for hundreds of thousands of bereft people in Gaza are getting through, but control of the crossings still has not changed.

    Apart from aid supplies, Gaza is in desperate need of bulding supplies, some of which are impossible to transport with current border restrictions.

    People hope the opening of all crossings will ease the difficulties they face to bring in humanitarian aid and potential building material.
