The United Nations (UN) urges Israel to take more measurements to allow all humanitarian aids to the Gaza Strip including materials that are necessary to carry out the plan of Humanitarian Response for 2021.
According to the UN Information Office, Lynn Hastings, Deputy Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process and UN RC, informed the UN Security Council, via videoconference technique, that Israel endangers the regular entry of goods into the strip, so the UN and its partners couldn’t be able to interfere positively to alleviate the dire conditions of the population of Gaza.
It is worth noting that the Strip is one of the most populous spots on the planet as about 2.5 million crammed in a narrow enclave next to the Mediterranean Sea in the west of Asia.
The UN also asks Israel to support the main services, livelihood, and the macroeconomy of the Strip.
Lyn affirmed that the international efforts coordinated by the UN are going in full swing.
She revealed that the organization could raise $ 45 million from $ 95 million to fund the urgent humanitarian call that was launched by the UN last May.
She added that eleven days of hostilities in May worsened the complicated situation in the Gaza Strip and weaken the local economy.
The European Union (EU) and the World Bank estimated damages of the Israeli aggression on Gaza at $280- 290 million.
The Strip needs $ 345-485 million to recover and reconstruct the infrastructure.
On July 14, Israel announced that it is about to set a new system that will serve as a safeguard to assure that donations won’t be diverted to bolster Hamas and other resistant Palestinian groups.
International humanitarian agencies estimated costs of reconstructing the Strip at $500 million following 11 days of cross-border fighting with the Israeli forces in May.
Qatar donated more than $1 billion worth of construction and other projects in Gaza, some of it in cash, after a war in 2014.
