#Gaza - I yearn for #Peace & #SHALOM

A senior UN relief agency spokesman says broken promises by the international community are costing lives in Gaza, six months after the end of last summer's conflict. 
Chris Gunness, spokesman for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which itself lost eight staff members during the 50-day war, writes That pledges of money have failed to materialise. 
He says he has met Palestinians who are living on a diet mainly of wild grass. 
Many have lost babies to hypothermia because they still have no proper shelter to keep out the winter storms 
in the aftermath of the conflict in which 2,104 Palestinians and'67'Israeli 
soldiers died and six civilians died. 
The UN estimates that about 100,000 homes and most of the region's infrastructure were damaged or destroyed.
