EU to send 100 million euros in Palestinian aid

Al Akhbar – September 14, 2012

The European Commission on Friday announced an extra 100 million euros in aid for water, sanitation, and refugees in the Occupied Palestinian territories.

There will also be an extra package of support to Palestinians living in the so-called Area C, which is under direct Israeli authority but where it is currently almost impossible for Palestinians and international donors to obtain building permits.

After the Israeli demolition there of community buildings and infrastructure such as rainwater cisterns, the EU’s new funding will provide training to build new infrastructure.

Additional funding for the United Nations refugee agency for Palestinians (UNWRA) will provide support on education, health, relief and social services for Palestine refugees in the West Bank, Gaza, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.

The new funds brings European Union aid to the Palestinians this year to 200 million euros.

Israel has in the past angered European donors after destroying several costly, high-profile infrastructure projects in the Occupied Territories.

  1. Hope all the 200 million euros aid has gone to the Palestinians who desperately need the funds and nothing has been diverted into the hands of their Israeli oppressors.

    • The Geneva Convention says the Occupation is the responsibility of the Othe ccupier and though I can understand why EU feels the need to supplement Israel illegal occupation, delaying the inevitability of the illegal est. Euro squatters returning to Europe en masse, Israel should also be billed for their wanton destruction of Palestinian Homes, Wells, Crops, Trees, Airport, Universities, Schools, Hospitals, Factories etc.

      If the $$$funds go via Israel, as is the norm, by the time the Chosenites get their thieving paws on it, the Palestinians would be lucky to see any portion of the $$$
