Israeli let-up on Gaza has little effect - UN agency

Published on 22 June 2011

The World Food Programme study “Gaza: eased or un-eased?” found that although an outright ban on shipment of building materials to the strip has been lifted for some projects, the administrative hurdles still remaining made implementation slow and expensive.
