USAID Official Blames Everything But Hamas For Failure To Deliver Aid

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I mean, sure, there could be certainly other issues, but, how many of these are really just Hamas?

Gunfire, lawlessness and gang-like looters are preventing aid distribution in Gaza, an official says

Thousands of tons of food, medicines and other aid piled up on a beach in war-torn Gaza is not reaching those in need because of a dire security situation and lawlessness on the ground, a U.S. aid official said Wednesday.

Truck drivers are getting caught in the crossfire or have their cargo seized by marauding “gang-like” groups, said Doug Strope, with the U.S. Agency for International Development.

The sense of desperation gripping ordinary Palestinians is only compounded by the combination of Gaza being an active combat zone and a prevailing “general sense of lawlessness,” Stropes told The Associated Press.

The security “that’s needed for the humanitarians to work is what’s really lacking right now,” the USAID official added.

Hamas runs Gaza. Virtually of of these issues can be linked right back to Hamas, which has the guns. Those gangs? Mostly Hamas. Looters? Well, again, mostly Hamas. Which also works with the UN aid program.

The remarks are the latest amid international criticism over Israel’s campaign against Hamas as Gaza faces severe and widespread hunger. The eight-month war has largely cut off the flow of food, medicine and basic goods to Gaza, and people there are now totally dependent on aid.

The war was triggered by Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack in which the militants stormed into southern Israel, killed some 1,200 people and took about 250 hostage. Since then Israel’s ground offensives and bombardments have killed more than 37,600 people in Gaza, according to the territory’s Health Ministry, which does not distinguish between combatants and civilians in its count.

Yes, the war was triggered by Hamas. There’s an old saying “if you can’t do the time don’t do the crime.”
