Gaza Under Attack

The U.N. Security Council welcomes the cease-fire between Israel and Hamas and calls for immediate humanitarian aid for Palestinian civilians, especially those in Gaza.

On the third day of the truce, thousands of displaced families are returning to their homes in Gaza – or what is left of them. At least 6,000 people are estimated to have been left homeless.

Egyptian mediators are in Israel and the Palestinian territories, trying to make sure hostilities do not resume. Hundreds of Hamas militants paraded through the streets of Gaza City in a show of strength on Saturday.

One of the triggers of the most recent tensions was a plan to evict some Palestinian residents from the Sheik Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem. The issue has yet to be decided by the Israeli Supreme Court.

War still looms

“Normality here also means 50 per cent employed and rising…they have been convinced after being here two and a half years that we will be back in war unless underlying causes are not addressed; and from a Gaza perspective that means giving people and especially young people a dignified perspective of a dignified life”, he said.

“If you have your own money and take home your own money to buy food instead of depending on handouts from the UN”, the top UN official added, “you’re less likely to run into groupings like Hamas”.

The UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mark Lowcock, allocated $4.5 million towards the cost of meeting rising needs across Gaza on Friday. The money comes from the Central Emergency Response Fund, which is in addition to some $18 million allocated from the Occupied Palestinian Territory Humanitarian Fund, making for a total of $22.5 million.
