UN Launches Appeal to Help 1.6 Million People in Palestine

The United Nations launched an appeal Monday for over a half billion dollars to help 1.6 million people in the Palestinian territories in 2017.

The money would cover 93 projects run by national and international organizations in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. According to the UN, almost 70 percent of the aid would go for reconstruction projects in Gaza, which has been suffering a tightened Israeli blockade for the past decade. Our correspondent Noor Harazeen has the story.
