World Bank blames Israel for Gaza situation

Friday, July 13, 2007 by Staff Writer

Ignoring Hamas’ open refusal to allow Jewish-grown food into the Gaza Strip, the World Bank on Thursday blamed Israel for the looming humanitarian crisis and economic collapse in the terrorist-ruled territory.

“The pillars of Gaza’s economy have weakened over the years. Now, with a sustained closure [of the Gaza-Israel border crossings] they would be at risk of virtually irreversible collapse,” Faris Hadad-Zervos, acting director of World Bank activities in the Palestinian Authority territories, was quoted by Reuters as telling a gathering of humanitarian agency heads on Thursday.
