US to send $47m in humanitarian aid to Gaza Strip

CAIRO - The US is sending $47 million in humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip to help tens of thousands of Palestinians there who have been forced from their homes since war broke out two weeks ago.

 

A State Department breakdown of the aid that was released Monday said nearly a third of the money - $15 million - will go to the United Nations' refugee mission in Gaza.
