The Palestinian economy is growing

According to the report compiled by the World Bank, the Palestinian economy has grown by an average of 3.5%. For occupied Palestine, it is a good result.

It is reported that the main obstacles to economic growth is the Israeli actions. So, after the Israeli operation "Cast Lead", which took place in 2008, Palestine was able to recover only 11% of the housing stock.

To draw conclusions about how the situation will develop is difficult enough, because, on the one hand, Tel Aviv signed a peace agreement with Ankara, according to which Turkey once again will be able to help Palestine, including financial and humanitarian aid. On the other - Israel's defense minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has approved a new project concerning the Palestinian situation. The international community has called it open the door to ethnic cleansing and other war crimes.
