Livni tells Sarkozy, 'no humanitarian crisis' in Gaza

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, on a visit to Paris on Thursday, reiterated her government's rejection of a French-proposed ceasefire in the Gaza Strip to allow in humanitarian aid, her office said.

Israel has so far killed more than 400 Palestinians in six days of air strikes.

"There is no humanitarian crisis in the Strip, and therefore there is no need for a humanitarian truce," the Foreign Ministry quoted Livni as saying in a statement.

With food and fuel also running dangerously low in the blockaded Strip, aid agencies and the UN itself has warned of a looming humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza.
