Aid to Lebanon

Israel has agreed to open a humanitarian corridor into Lebanon:
"Israel agreed on Thursday to allow humanitarian aid to flow directly into Lebanon as the the Israel Defense Forces continues to press a major offensive against Hezbollah guerrillas, officials said.

"The aid will be brought by a French ship to the Lebanese port of Sidon, Defense Minister Amir Peretz said. Israel's decision follows a United States request to open a 'humanitarian corridor' that would allow ships to anchor on Lebanese shores to unload their supplies.

"Israel has imposed a blockade on Lebanon but has not stopped foreign countries from evacuating their nationals."
