The Arab League Sunday afternoon decided to break the American-led embargo against sending aid to the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority (PA). "We decided not to cooperate with [the blockade]. There will no longer be an international siege," said Bahrain's Foreign Minister Sheik Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa after a meeting in Cairo.
The Arab League's decision was a swift reprisal to Saturday's veto by the United States of a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel for its anti-terrorist offensive, which resulted in the accidental deaths and injuries of civilians in Bet Hanoun, where terrorists have staged rocket attacks against Israel.
