News the HP Doesn't Cover: Building Materials Resume Transfer

One less thing for Gaza apologists to whine about, but will it result in more conflict later?
Israel has decided to once again allow construction materials for UN projects to be brought into the Gaza Strip, the United Nations announced Monday.The import of construction materials was suspended after the IDF discovered a Hamas tunnel leading out of the Gaza Strip in October that used 500 tons of cement.According to Robert Serry, the UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, the UN is building schools, housing, water and sanitation facilities in the Strip, at a cost of $500 million.“The situation in Gaza remains concerning,” Serry said in a statement, “and the United Nations is engaged with relevant parties in trying to address the most urgent issues such as energy, water and private sector construction.”
