RAMALLAH, August 4, 3014 (WAFA) – Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah on Monday discussed with the UNRWA Commissioner-General, Pierre Krahenbuhl, the ability to provide Gaza with power through international ships, and asked the latter to put pressure on Israel for approval.

The remarks came during the Prime Minister’s meeting with the UNRWA Commissioner-General, Pierre Krahenbuhl, as he briefed him about the situation in the Gaza Strip. The PA is coordinating with international humanitarian institution such as UNRWA to provide medical, food and water relief.

Hamdallah added that many countries have expressed their will to cooperate in the project. “The international vessels can aid in solving the power and water outages and in treating the water”, he said.

Meanwhile, Krahenbuhl confirmed that the UNRWA is ready to fully cooperate with the Palestinian Consensus Government in all sects. The Commissioner briefed Hamdallah on the UNRWA’s efforts in Gaza Strip to assess the damages from the Israeli barrage, in order to start the reconstruction of the infrastructure and the rebuild of the shelled UNRWA schools.

The Prime Minister expressed his gratitude for the efforts the UNRWA is putting in sheltering the displaced Palestinians in Gaza. He also appreciated the UNRWA’s strong condemnation of the Israeli bombardment of their schools.

Finally, Hamdallah called for the international community to compel Israel to stop its brutal aggression on the Palestinian citizens in Gaza, and called for the international intervention to support cease fire negotiations in Cairo.
