GAZA (Ma'an) -- The unemployment among women in the Gaza Strip has reached more than 60 percent, a women’s organization said on Saturday.
Fida Abu Darbi, the executive officer for the Association Of Women’s Work Committees, said the unemployment of women in Gaza had reached "astronomical" levels at 63.3 percent. (February 20, 2016.)The blockade was supposed to engineer the fall of Hamas from power. It has failed to do so. But while the Israeli-Egyptian blockade is in force so many within Gaza are suffering. The blockade needs to go.
