KERRY IN GAZA PLEDGES MORE AID TO REBUILD GAZA

Gaza

As nations and organizations began lining up to help rebuild the war-ravaged Gaza Strip, representatives of several major donors said Sunday that this is the last time they will pay and urged Israel and the Palestinians to negotiate a final settlement leading to two separate states.

Appearing in Cairo at a conference of more than 50 donor nations, U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry announced that the United States would contribute an additional $212 million to Gaza reconstruction. The Americans have already sent $118 million. Coupled with $84 million given to the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, which cares for Palestinian refugees, the total U.S. commitment to rebuilding Gaza now stands at more than $400 million.

  1. I applaud the Government of Cairo on there position of not giving any more money to Gaza Strip. Israel has always been ready to talk. This ball is strictly in the PLO’s hands. It should be noted that it does not appear that Sec. Kerry made the same conditions.
