Gaza aid workers fear impact of Hamas collusion allegations

The office of the US-based Christian NGO World Vision in Gaza City, pictured on August 4, 2016Getting foreign aid to hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in Gaza has never been easy, but aid workers say Israeli allegations that several of their own colluded with Hamas could make it even harder. In the past week three Palestinian aid workers have been accused of working with Hamas in Gaza, where humanitarians already felt squeezed between restrictions from Israel and the Islamist group which controls the strip. The separate indictments of the Gaza head of major charity World Vision and a UN engineer on charges of working for Hamas have been met by aid workers in Gaza with a mixture of scepticism, fear and self-analysis.
