Israeli-Palestinian tensions flared in the Gaza Strip as Palestinian trucks blocked entrances to several Jewish settlements. The blockade came after Israeli troops refused to allow the Palestinians access on the security road near the Gush Katif section of the Gaza Strip. U.S. and Egyptian officials reportedly joined efforts to resolve the dispute peacefully. Amid the dispute, a Jewish woman about to give birth had to be transported from her home by helicopter.
