Crisis in Gaza and the West Bank
“Unless Palestinians in the Strip get access to the outside world, it is difficult to see anything but underdevelopment being the fate of the Gaza Palestinian society,” said Richard Kozul-Wright, director of the Division on Globalization and Development Strategies at UNCTAD. “It is really shocking that in the 21st century, two million people can be left in that kind of condition.”
‘Hate crime’ attacks by Israeli settlers and soldiers on Palestinians spiked in the West Bank and it continues to rise.
School children are suffering the most from such an aggression. We need to provide safe places where children can learn without the constant threat of settlers and soldiers blocking their access to schools.
The school children of Al-Lubban Al-Sharqiyah (my village) have been under constant threat by settlers and soldiers since last year. No school child should be subjected to such threats daily. School children need to focus on their education and work towards a future based on purpose rather than fear.
The Hope Foundation of Palestine is committed to help communities provide a safe and nurturing learning environment.
