Accusing the United Nations relief agency, which looks after the world body's operation in Gaza, of giving "one-sided" statements, a leading US-based Jewish group has asked it to eliminate the "anti-Israeli and anti- Semitic" aspects in the school text books distributed by it.

The accusation came as top officials of the UN Relief and Works Agency in Near East (UNRWA) charged Israel with not allowing sufficient quantity of relief supplies to enter Gaza through the check points it controls, resulting in severe shortages.
