Rubble trouble in settlements

Remains of Jewish settlements in Gaza will be used to build new roads, says the UN

The rubble from Gaza’s evacuated Jewish settlements will be crushed to build new roads in the territory.

Timothy Rothermel, special representative for the United Nations Development Programme, told Reuters that clearing of the debris was expected to start by December and take at least a year.

The crushed concrete could be used to build new roads in the densely populated strip.

Palestinians asked the Israelis to destroy the settlements before completing their withdrawal in September and Israel is paying an estimated US $30 million for the removal of
the rubble.

Around 8500 settlers had lived in occupied enclaves that took up nearly a fifth of the Gaza Strip alongside 1.4 million Palestinians.
