UN gears up for Gaza funding drive as EU chief balks at paying to rebuild
"The EU cannot be expected to finance yet again the re-building of Gaza without a meaningful prospect of actually solving the underlying conflict."

The United Nations plans to launch a major funding drive to rebuild Gaza in the aftermath of the 2021 war with Israel, just as the European Union's foreign policy chief Josep Borrrell wrote about his frustration about continually paying for the cost of the IDF-Hamas conflict. "The EU cannot be expected to finance yet again the re-building of Gaza without a meaningful prospect of actually solving the underlying conflict," Borrell wrote in a blog he posted over the weekend. Although his statement did not have the consensus of the 27-member states, it does reflect the sentiment of some of them.

He spoke out as top UN officials — Humanitarian Coordinator for the Palestinian territories Lynn Hasting and UN Relief and Works Agency Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini — visited Gaza over the weekend. They surveyed the civilian damage done during the 11-day IDF operation to target Hamas terror infrastructure, known as Guardian of the Walls which began in response to Hamas rocket attacks against Israeli civilians on May 10 and ended early Friday morning. It is the fourth Gaza since Operation Cast Lead in December 2008 and January 2009. Two other additional wars, one in 2012 dubbed Pillar of Defense and one in 2014, known as Operation Protective Edge.

A fool and his money will soon be parted. This applies to all those who keep "rebuilding" Gaza expecting things to change when a terrorist organization runs the enclave. :doh
