EU: €13mn to support poor Palestinians families #eu #palestine



On Saturday EU announced the delivery of the third tranche – which amounts to 12.6 mn – of the 50mn financial aid aimed to relief families in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

The contribution should cover the primary needs of 122,000 Palestinian households living in poverty through the EU’s PEGASE program wich was launched in 2008 to help the Palestinian authority to achieve the three-year reform-and-development plan.

As seen in our newspaper, the israeli government opposes payments to palestinians by the EU, as it could finance terrorist activities.
