Hamas prevents humanitarian aid delivery to Gaza

6:44 pm - 06/07/2010
The bulk of the humanitarian aid from the Turkish flotilla that has been confiscated by Israel has been released and is awaiting delivery to Gaza, however Hamas prevents the goods from being delivered according to Der Spiegel.


"The aid shipment that the Palestinian activists' flotilla was hoping to bring to Gaza before they were halted by Israeli commandos is now awaiting delivery. But Hamas will only let the badly needed goods into the territory under certain conditions. "


When and if Hamas eventually lets the goods in, it is unlikely that they will reach these in need. Most probably that the aid will be distributed among Hamas supporters.


"Hamas supporters get prefabricated housing, furnishings and paid work. We get nothing"

Point taken. I didn't see it like that.

Hamas has reasons to distribute aid only to people who declare they support Hamas? Well, yeah, I can see their *reasons* but you can't claim those are good ones.

That's not the reasons they're giving out, but this is not a new thing. The closer you are to Hamas, the more supplies you get.
