Life in the Occupied Palestine Territories is unsustainable and - with nearly one in three people out of a job - it also has the world’s highest unemployment rate, according to Isabelle Durant, UNCTAD Deputy Secretary-General. Ms. Durant spoke with UN News’s Jens Renner in Geneva, about UNCTAD's latest report on life in the Occupied Palestine Territories.
Funding for humanitarian operations in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) is at an “all-time low”, threatening the delivery of life-saving aid to people in the West Bank and Gaza, the United Nations warned on Friday.
Medical teams inside Gaza are running out of supplies to cope with the wounded, following the deadliest day of protests against occupation along the border with Israel so far this year, UN aid agencies warned on Tuesday.
The President of the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Mahmoud Abbas, appealed to the UN on Wednesday to help stop the violence there, or else risk an “explosion” by his people that would have “grave consequences” for everyone.
