UNRWA in Gaza: more details


YNet has just issued a story detailing the reasons for UNRWA ceasing (temporarily, we hope) its work in Gaza: the IDF killed one of its local workers on his way to collect a shipment.

"The UN is suspending its aid operations in Gaza until we can get safety and security guarantees for our staff," spokesman Chris Gunness said. "We've been coordinating with them (Israeli forces) and yet our staff continues to be hit and killed."

UNRWA supports up to 750,000 Gazans with daily rounds to 20,000 people, and employs 9,000 local staff, providing a significant boost to Gaza’s economy.
