UN envoy: Palestinian political stalemate is stalling Gaza rebuilding

The inability of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas to cooperate in the Gaza Strip has hit vital post-war rebuilding and international donors are wary of sending more funds, a senior United Nations envoy said on Thursday. The main UN aid agency in the coastal enclave said on Tuesday it was suspending payments to tens of thousands of Palestinians for repairs to homes damaged in the July-August war with Israel because money from international donors had run out. “We need a government … that is able to take responsibility,” Robert Serry, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process and the Secretary General’s personal envoy to the Palestinians, told Reuters.
