Millions of dollars in construction supplies that were donated to the people of Gaza have been redirected instead by Hamas to rebuild and upgrade its underground military tunnel network. Hamas provides technical and material support to the Sinai Province terrorist branch of ISIS in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, via the tunnel network.

The “Quartet” comprised of the United Nations, European Union, Russia and the United States is forming a new plan to revive the moribund Israel-Palestinian Authority peace process.

UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process Nicolai Mladenov told media at a news conference in New York on Wednesday the Quartet plans to issue an analysis of the obstacles to a final two-state solution. Included in the report will be recommendations on how to advance the process.

Mladenov is to brief the UN Security Council Thursday on the situation in the Middle East, including the current status of reconstruction efforts in Gaza.

Work on the analysis of the obstacles to peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority has already begun, according to Mladenov. He said the Quartet is seeking input from Israel as well as the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, “to produce a good assessment,” Xinhua reported.

He added the report, to be completed by the end of the summer, will be used to inform the international body and consolidate consensus on a two-state solution “as the only viable option.”

Mladenov also told media that 100,000 families in Gaza now have access to construction materials with which to repair and rebuild their homes. In addition, 9,000 new jobs have been created, he said. But infrastructure projects relating to accessing fresh water and electricity are still needed, the envoy noted.

He also claimed that only 35 percent of the $3.5 billion pledged by the United States at the 2014 Cairo conference has been disbursed thus far. Mladenov urged all donors to “make good” on their commitments. Very few of the Arab nations who pledged millions have actually fulfilled those promises.

  1. Israel is city of God, even UN lambasted Israel , God is great protector than any nations who is against it, don’t be one sided, look at the two sides of a coin, the head and the tail, intiende in Spain understand. Claro or clear. There”s a good purpose for ascendants and descendants of Sephardic Jews, their sacrifices and love is never wasted.They are always there with God on their side to protect Israel.

  2. Successful negotiations involve the unconditional acceptance of the State of Israel by the other Arab nations! Never happened! Never will! Israel has made ” Land for Peace ” agreements before. Imagine the “Peace” agreements for a future negotiation! The Arabs want “Pieces ” of Israel, not “Peace ” with Israel!

  3. The United Nazis (UN) are too busy to blame Israel for what UNESCO, UNRWA and other "humanitarian" agencies suffer from. There is no OSLO (that was illegal), there isn't any two-way agreement, always one side. Also I noticed that they have not truly condemned the terror attack in Eurabia. It needs to be dissolved for failing to follow their own charter.
