Palestinians have suffered inordinately and the global community has failed Gaza, according to the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA.

In a joint statement, 30 international aid organizations including UNRWA say they are alarmed at the limited progress in rebuilding the lives of those affected by conflict in the coastal enclave.

Six months have passed since a ceasefire on 26 August 2014 ended over seven weeks of fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian armed groups in the Gaza Strip.

Stephanie Coutrix spoke with Chris Gunness, a spokesperson for UNRWA, and began by asking him for what the thirty agencies are urgently calling for.
