Most Gaza war damage still not repaired: UN

Israel continues to bar construction material from entering Hamas-ruled Gaza.



Ramallah: A UN agency says about three-quarters of the damage inflicted by Israel`s war on Gaza more than a year ago has not been repaired or rebuilt.

Israel continues to bar construction material from entering Hamas-ruled Gaza as part of an overall blockade of the territory.

The UN Development Program said in a report on Sunday that Gazans have carried out small-scale repairs worth USD 173 million with recycled rubble or material smuggled through border tunnels.

The report says the international community has been largely sidelined in the reconstruction effort. The UN can do little because it refrains from buying smuggled goods.
Israel says it bans construction material to prevent it from being used by Hamas for military purposes.
