EU to give Palestinian Authority aid

The European Commission said on December 22 that it would give the Palestinian Authority aid to the tune of 118 million Euros as well as 125 million Euros in humanitarian assistance to Gaza. Aid to the enclave will be given at the start of next year, reports Reuters. 

A territory under siege, Gaza is seeing food shortages and numerous reports have shown the difficulties humanitarian groups have had in delivering much needed aid to residents. 

Ursula Von Der Leyen , the commission’s chief, said, “We are reflecting on a wider mid-term package for next year to contribute to the economic and political stability of Gaza and the West Bank, once conditions allow on the ground, as part of wider international efforts to reinstate a two-state solution,”
