HUMAN first, then a proud IRANIAN

This blog represents the way I see some of the most significant events impacting the world and its citizens. This blog also represents how I react to the events as a member of humanity with a voice, a determined voice that insists to be heard. The voice of an Iranian who loves his country but his priority is humanity; humanity without border. I will say what I want to say, when I want to say it, and how I want to say it, but I will never lie. I will also listen; I promise.

UN "stopping food aid to Gaza" due to Israeli restrictions

Food deliveries to the Gaza Strip will be halted this week because of Israeli restrictions, the United Nations said.... Peter Hansen, the UN chief responsible for Palestinian refugees, said his agency was no longer allowed to take empty food containers out of Gaza..... Their loss added "intolerable costs to a programme already stung by underfunding", Mr Hansen complained...
An Israeli spokesman told BBC News Online suicide bombers had used the containers for hiding in.
He (Mr Hansen - Faramin) also said some aid workers could not enter the Gaza Strip anymore, because Israeli restrictions forced them to cross the border in exposed areas, "creating unacceptable risk and danger". Read it here.
