Since this edition of JPN was originally posted on January 27:
- The supplies have not been allowed into Gaza yet, but as of the 29th (according to Adam Keller of Gush Shalom), activists were still negotiating with the military.
- There are plans afoot to limit the supply of fuel and power to Gaza.
- The Israeli High Court of Justice rejected a petition to prohibit such limitations.

On January 26th, 1500 activists traveled as a convoy from all over Israel to the Erez junction border with Gaza to bring much needed supplies to the Palestinians of Gaza, suffering under Israeli siege. The events, which included the convoy, a rally of the Jewish and Palestinian activists inside of Israel at Erez and a parallel rally of Palestinians inside of Gaza, were the collaborative work of the Palestinian International Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza and about 20 different Israeli organizations. The activists brought three tons of food and other supplies to Gaza.
