AMMAN, Jordan, 11 January 2009 As the conflict in the Gaza Strip continues in its third week, UNICEF teams are working to ensure that critical supplies are ready to reach women and children at risk.

At the same time, however, aid agencies do not yet enjoy protection and safe access for their humanitarian operations.
