Wikileaks: Israel planned to keep Gaza economy on the edge of an abyss

GAZA, (PIC)– Wikileaks revealed that Israel told the US embassy in Tel Aviv in cables that it intended to keep the economy in the besieged Gaza Strip on the brink of collapse through tightening the blockade on its people.

Some of the cables illustrated that Israel kept the US embassy briefed on its internationally-slammed blockade of Gaza people.

As part of their overall embargo plan against Gaza, Israeli officials confirmed in one of the cables to the US embassy on multiple occasions that they intend to keep the Gaza economy on the brink of collapse without quite pushing it over the edge.

Israel wanted the economy in Gaza functioning at the lowest level possible, but with avoiding a humanitarian crisis, Israeli officials claimed in a cable sent on November 3, 2008.

The economic life in Gaza is facing many hardships and its unemployment rate is considered the highest percentage in the world, where it rose in 2010 to 35 percent.
