“With this new assistance package the EU continues to support the Palestinians on their way towards the establishment of their own state as part of the two-state solution, with Jerusalem as capital of both Israel and Palestine. The European Union is, and will remain, Palestine’s most reliable and important donor, investing in businesses, youth and schooling, helping to provide access to clean water in Gaza, strengthening civil society and investing on education and health.” Said Negotiations, Johannes Hahn.
The European Commission has adopted a €42.5 million assistance package benefiting Palestinians, including substantial support in East Jerusalem. New projects will increase the resilience of locals and support the Palestinian presence in East-Jerusalem, through targeted measures benefiting young people and the private sector.
