(IsraelNN.com) The Israeli government approved NIS 104 million monthly transfers into Gaza with NIS 50 million earmarked for Palestinian Authority government workers, according to a Ynet report late on Wednesday. For the first time since Operation Cast Lead, cement shipments into Gaza will also be resumed.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak approved the cement shipments which amount to more than 310 tons. The cement will be used to upgrade a flour mill, a wastewater purification plant, and the British cemetery.
...and to harden bunkers and tunnels against IDF tank assaults and IAF air assaults.

(IsraelNN.com) British spokesman Martin Day said in an interview in Dubai with Al-Arabiya television last week that the British government is actively funding political activity in Israel and "taking practical steps towards freezing settlement activities." According to Day, the British government finances “projects aimed at halting settlement activities. One of these projects seeks to build new Palestinian neighborhoods in east Jerusalem and save Palestinian houses from demolition. And we also finance organizations that monitor settlement activities."
He further stated that "products from the settlements do not enjoy preferential custom duties that we offer to products coming from Israel. In light of this, we can say that we are taking effective and practical steps against settlement activities." The Foreign Ministry's senior deputy director general, Rafi Barak, spoke with British Ambassador Tom Phillips two days ago and voiced Israel's displeasure.
