UNRWA official: Israeli refusal to allow stationary into Gaza illogical

GAZA, (PIC)-- An UNRWA official in Gaza criticised the Israeli occupation for not allowing stationary and textbooks into the Gaza Strip describing this action as illogical and unacceptable.

Adnan Abu Hasna, spokesman for the UNRWA is Gaza said on Thursday that hundreds of thousands of Palestinian school-children are affected by this Israeli ban on stationary and textbooks to schools.

He said that even when stationary is found in some shops, it is too expensive for parents, who are unemployed and are suffering because of the bad economic situation, to buy for their children.

Abu Hasna expressed astonishment at the Israeli insistence to ban the entry of these materials asking: "What is the link between stationary and textbooks and the security of Israel?!"
