Gaza, 11 Rabi’ul Akhir 1436/1 February 2015 (MINA) – The government committee to break the siege on Gaza described UN Middle East envoy Robert Serry’s remarks about UNRWA’s decision to stop its financial aid as political statements par excellence.
Serry’s statements came in total violation of the UN institution’s humanitarian role, the committee said, The palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
Earlier, Serry said that donor countries refused to transfer the funds for the reconstruction due to the absence of a government in Gaza.
Such political statements come in violation of the UN institutions’ humanitarian role in occupied territories and confirm Serry’s Gaza reconstruction mechanism’s failure.
The government committee said that there is only one government in Gaza Strip. “There are no obstacles in the unity government’s performance in this matter.”
The Palestinian minister for Public Works and Housing is managing the construction file from the Strip itself, the statement continued.
The committee pointed out that Serry’s plan was refused by all Palestinian segments, factions, and human rights institutions.
Serry’s plan for the reconstruction of Gaza provides legitimacy to the Israeli siege, the committee’s statement concluded.(T/P008/P3)
