Madrid: Mideast envoy Tony Blair says he
expects sorely needed construction material to arrive in the
Gaza Strip within two or three weeks, now that Israel has
agreed to ease its blockade of the Hamas-ruled territory.
Construction material will be used to repair the damage
caused by the Israeli-Hamas war that began in December 2008.
Israel fears items such as cement and metal could be used
for military purposes and wants construction materials to
enter Gaza under international supervision.

Israel agreed to ease the blockade due to international
pressure after its deadly commando attack against a Gaza-bound
flotilla killed nine pro-Palestinian activists in May.
