UNRWA sit-in to expand to Gaza from south

[ 13/03/2011 – 10:42 AM ]


GAZA, (PIC)– Gazans whose homes were demolished by the Israeli occupation since 2002 have decided to expand a sit-in to UN Relief Works Agency main headquarters in Gaza City.

They have been sitting in at UNRWA headquarters in Rafah and Khan Younis, where their homes were damaged, for the last two weeks to protest the relief agency’s failure to rebuild their homes.

UNRWA announced last Wednesday that Israel has approved two key housing projects in Rafah and Khan Younis to harbor Palestinians whose houses have been destroyed in recent years.

Israel has destroyed around 3,000 homes in Rafah and Khan Younis housing more than 4,200 families since 2000.

Palestinian refugees in Beirut have tried to storm UNRWA headquarters there to protest the death of a boy that resulted from a marked decline in services provided by UNRWA
