The UN Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs, Jeffrey Feltman says 15 projects worth 14 million dollars are currently on hold. They are on top of 42 other projects worth 96 million dollars, which are awaiting Israeli permission. Feltman also said the Palestinians’ living conditions are constantly deteriorating due to Israeli policies. He added that because of Israel’s blockade of Gaza, the unemployment rate there, has now reached over thirty percent.
