    GAZA, (PIC)-- Owners of destroyed homes in Rafah and Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip, have decided to close down UNRWA main offices in protest at the latter’s delay in starting to re-build their homes, which were destroyed in the Israeli war on Gaza.

    A committee of those citizens charged UNRWA with not being sincere in its bid to re-build their homes, explaining that the agency had promised to start building in mid June, that is today but nothing happened.

    A committee member Iyad Barhoum told Safa news agency that UNRWA gave three dates for preparing then starting the construction but nothing took place.

    “We discovered that UNRWA promises were nothing more than ink on paper,” he said, adding that the agency voiced trivial pretexts such as that Israel only gave verbal rather than written approval to start construction and import necessary material.

    Get the house destroyed and have a modern one rebuilt on somebody else's dime. And there's no quarantee they haven't blown it up by themselves in the first place. All in all, gazabadians have a cool occupation, indeed.
