Khudari: IOA pays compensations to UNRWA to beautify its image[ 23/01/2010 – 03:02 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC)– MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular anti siege committee, has charged that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) had paid compensations to UNRWA for the destruction of its buildings during the Gaza war only to beautify its image before the world.

Khudari in a press release on Saturday said that the IOA is trying to absolve itself of responsibility for the disastrous consequences of the war on Gaza that left thousands killed or wounded and thousands of houses, public buildings and headquarters destroyed in addition to the displacement of many families.

The symbolic 10 million dollar compensation is also an attempt to deceive the world into believing that the IOA is a moral, legal and humanitarian state, he added.

The MP underlined that the Palestinians could not rebuild what was destroyed in the war without the world pressuring the IOA into opening all crossings and allowing entry of reconstruction material.
