The same "conditions" that "provoked" Hamas into waging a war on millions of Israeli civilians still apply, spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri claimed Saturday night.
"The conditions for the situation in Gaza exploding still exist," Abu Zuhri stated to Al-Jazeera. "On the contrary, they are even tougher now than they were before the Israeli aggression in Gaza."
Abu Zuhri then made some veiled threats to the international community, urging them to put pressure on Israel.
"If the international community wishes that the situation will not blow up again, it must step in and resolve the situation and handle it through a real and serious removal of the siege," Abu Zuhri stated, referring to Israel's travel and import restrictions to prevent terrorism from escalating in the region. It should also be noted that the real blockade in Gaza is from Egypt, which closed border crossings and stopped humanitarian aid after beginning a crackdown on the group more than a year ago.
Abu Zuhri's remarks surfaced as more than 50 international representatives and bodies met in Cairo to discuss options for rebuilding Gaza, after the Palestinian Authority "unity government" and the UNRWA requested a combined $5.6 billion in aid to rebuild the terror state.
However, confidence in a true "rebuilding of Gaza," is waning, one diplomat revealed Friday, noting that, due to Hamas's constant wars, and statistics proving that it does not actually rebuild civilian areas, the campaign is suffering from "donor fatigue."
"We have seen infrastructure projects that we have contributed to which have been destroyed," the diplomat said, adding that skepticism had existed even before the recent conflict.
Ample evidence has proven that Hamas uses UN and other aid money, as well as materials, to build terror tunnels into Israeli territory with the aim of attacking Israeli citizens, instead of providing buildings to its own citizens.
Meanwhile, Hamas has begun to rebuild terror tunnels into Israel on foreign aid money. Despite this, the UN has already joined the PA in making a call for $550 million to rebuild Gaza.
