UN envoy welcomes reopening of Gaza NGO

Aug. 14, 2011 6:14 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 15, 2011 12:10 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process released a statement on Sunday welcoming the reopening of the International Medical Corps in the coastal enclave.

"UN Special Coordinator Robert Serry welcomes the reopening of International Medical Corps (IMC) today in Gaza. He recognizes the important work of NGOs in Gaza and is confident that a way forward has been reached in the interest of the people of Gaza," a statement released by the UNSCO office said.

The statement comes as USAID halted humanitarian assistance to the Gaza Strip on Friday over alleged meddling by Hamas into project activities.

A Hamas official announced Saturday that a compromise had been reached with USAID to maintain the continuation of aid channels.

"We've reached a compromise with USAID through the United Nations."

"We are keen on the continuation of the international institutions' work and their services to our people," the Hamas official said.
