On page 2, fifth column from the left, entitled ‘In-country political development’, the text should read:

Since 2006, the humanitarian situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory has gravely deteriorated, especially in the Gaza Strip, which hindered the delivery of essential services. Moreover, as a result of the embargo imposed on the Gaza Strip, the ability of United Nations organizations to continue dialogue and programme interventions has been hindered. More recently, the situation in Gaza has been further compromised by the tightening of the blockade and military attacks.
