UN, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The limitations that Israel places do not allow the UN to start or renew the implementation of humanitarian projects worth $110 million in Gaza, said UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman.
“The implementation of UN projects has not been renewed, though it was agreed upon with the Israeli authorities. Fifteen projects worth $14 million are currently on hold. Forty-two more projects worth $96 million are awaiting Israel’s permission,” Feltman said at the UN Security Council session on Tuesday. The Under-Secretary-General says the humanitarian situation in Palestine continues to deteriorate, and it gets “harder and harder for the UN to help the population of Gaza because of limited access.”
Feltman has also noted that the unemployment rate in the Gaza Strait has reached 38.5% in 2013, according to IMF.
