The United States on Monday announced a $50 million aid program for Gaza, reports The Associated Press (AP).
American officials quoted by the news agency said that the money will be used over five years to provide basic humanitarian assistance and create jobs in the coastal enclave.
The money will be distributed by the U.S Agency for International Development in partnership with Catholic Relief Services.
The U.S. Consul General in Jerusalem, Donald A. Blume, said the effort is meant to address "the dire needs that are obvious in Gaza", according to the AP report.
Gaza's economy has sharply declined since Hamas took over the coastal territory from its longtime rival Fatah nearly a decade ago. Unemployment there is estimated to be over 40 percent.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
That's what happens when 90%+ of the aid money they get is spent on weapons and building tunnels to transport them.
So what does Obama do? Give them more money to buy more weapons to kill more Israelis, of course.
With which they will buy more katusha rockets no doubt.
More terror gang attack tunnels and murder assaults on innocent infidels. Obama continues to build up international Muslim attack forces with American taxpayers’ money. And our sell- out Congress continues to let him get away with it
Now the USA is a state sponsor of terrorism.
Do we have any of those malaria infested blankets we gave the injuns left?
The Gaza is a rat hole. We should be helping Americans FIRST!!!
American democrats supports terrorism. any Jew who votes democrat is no better than a concentration camp kapo.
Obamas true colors are showing and his hatred for Israel
and this is why AMERICAN’S SUPPORT DONALD J. TRUMP...
HE WILL STOP THIS NONSENSE ..
DONALD J. TRUMP WILL PUT AMERICA, FIRST...
NOT FOREIGN COUNTRIES...
WAKE UP VOTERS WE NEED TO GET DJT TO 1237 BEFORE CONVENTION..the GOP also needs to wake up...we voters are speaking LOUD AND CLEAR....
Daggum. We just keep on giving to everybody else around the world. Seriously, we need to get our own house in order and balance the budget. D*mn. Would that I could financially afford to support my extended family and those I love - well, NOT those who make poor financial decisions. Somebody needs a rude awakening - a “come to Jesus meeting,” per se.
Obama wants to make of the USA what Jerry Sandusky is to college football.
