CARACAS (Ma'an) -- The government of Venezuela is to send $100 million in humanitarian aid to Gaza via the Palestinian Authority in order to help the Strip's suffering civilian population in the wake of winter storm Alexa.

The Venezuelan move was the result of intensive efforts taken by the Palestinian ministry of foreign affairs to obtain aid for Gazans, the ministry said, after the besieged coastal enclave was hit by a heavy winter storm that caused widespread flooding, cut already-limited power supplies, and displaced between 10,000 and 40,000 people.

Following the storm, Palestinian ambassador to Venezuela Linda Suboh appealed to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his foreign minister Elias Jaua, the statement said.

When former president Hugo Ch?vez took power in 1999 there were approximately 22,000 Jews in Venezuela—today that number sits between 9,500 and 14,000. This has led leading the Jewish Community Educational System to close one of the two large Jewish schools in Venezuela, leaving only two in the country, one large, and one small orthodox school. These emigrating Jews need homes in the Jewish State of Israel, for their own safety.

@ Maureen Australia. I doubt your figures come from any verifiable source that isn't in some way connected with the regime in Tel Aviv. Why do I say this ? Because it is obvious to me that you are a pro zionist & have no pity for the people of Palestine who suffer daily under the jack boot of zionazi racism. It's funny that Iran, the alleged "existential threat" to Israel has maintained a static population of Jews for decades, quite happy (& obviously feeling quite safe) to stay in Iran.
