West Bank poor pay heavy price

Charity says living conditions in parts of West Bank are worse than in blockaded Gaza.

    A report by the charity Save the Children has said that living conditions in parts of the West Bank are now so dire that people living there are worse off than in blockaded Gaza.

    The charity claims that an estimated 40,000 Palestinians living under Israeli control are prevented from performing even the most basic repairs to homes, schools and hospitals.
