Jerusalem (AP) The Israeli Military says it will briefly halt its operations in Gaza during the day to allow in humanitarian aid and fuel.

Military Spokesman Peter Lerner gave no specific time for the halt. But the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem says the military has informed it of a planned lull between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. local time.

Israel has come under criticism for harming Gaza civilians during its 12-day-long offensive aimed at the territory’s militant Hamas rulers.

Gaza is suffering from shortages of basic supplies and fuel, and much of the strip is without electricity and running water.
