It’s been a little over two weeks since the Gaza – Israel ceasefire. The United Nations has just released a report detailing what the 50 day war has cost Gaza so far, including the death toll.
Here are Hamas’s conditions to accept ceasefire.
1- Open land borders to enter and leave Gaza freely.
2- Establish maritime corridor & seaport.
3- Release prisoners (there are more than 7000 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli Jails).
4- Grant access to Jerusalem Holy Sites for Gazan People.
5- Lift the siege over Gaza and let foods and fuel enter without limitations.
6- Build new power plant.

Gazans are struggling in the wake of Israeli shelling and airstrikes that have reduced much of Gaza to rubble. Initial estimates suggest it could cost upto $6bn dollars to rebuild the tiny strip’s infrastructure after hundreds of factories were hit by Israeli shelling and airstrikes. These problems are made even worse after an attack on Gaza’s only power plant left homes and hospitals with just a few hours of access to electricity. Al Jazeera’s Charles Stratford reports from Gaza.
With the only power plant in Gaza destroyed by Israel, 1.6 million people are without electricity and 2 in 3 don’t have access to safe water or basic sanitation.
