Estonia to Aid Gaza With 75,000 Euros (1)
Estonia has earmarked 75,000 to ease the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, with the money going to the area through the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).
“Access to water is a huge problem and there are also problems with sewage disposal, and medication is needed,” Foreign Minister Urmas Paet said.
Over 100,000 have fled during the conflict, with 600, mostly Palestine civilians, killed.
Paet said the government of Israel and the Palestine authority must both do all that is possible to stave of further escalation.
Israel launched an attack in the Gaza Strip on July 8, after rocket attacks by Hamas.
