Description
RAMALLAH, December 28, 2011(WAFA) – UNRWA spokesman in Gaza, Adnan Abu Hasna Wednesday said to Voice of Palestine radio that Israel is legally and morally responsible of rebuilding the Gaza Strip.

Abu Hasna, speaking on the third anniversary of the Israeli Operation Cast Lead against Gaza in December, 2008 and January, 2011, said the ongoing Israeli blockade on the Strip hinders any possibility to rebuild it.

Palestinians, particularly children, still suffer from the emotional aftermath of the Israeli attack, he added.

He said that there is one crossing – Karm Abu Salem-- through which the building materials enter Gaza, which is not sufficient, demanding Israel to open the rest of the crossings.

He pointed out that there are moves exerted in order to allow the entrance of more building materials, since Israel is the one occupying the strip and fully responsible for its reconstruction.
