    The situation at Palestinian territory remains unsettled following Hamas win in the Parliamentary election. Last night, south of the Gaza Strip, clashes took place between armed Hamas men and members of the Palestinian security forces, resulting in at least five persons being injured. In the meantime, today, the Israeli Defence Ministry announced that it will not allow newly-elected MPs of the Palestinian Islamic Organisation, Hamas, to freely circulate in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. At the same time, US President George W Bush stated that the US will stop distributing aid, if Hamas does not renounce violence and its plan to destroy Israel when it comes into power. "If they do not do so, we will not negotiate with them," stated Mr Bush in an interview to television channel CBS. "The aid will not be distributed to the country," said the US President, without explaining if he was referring to the total of aid, including humanitarian programmes or only the funds given to the Palestinian Authority.
