The United Nations will ask donor countries to contribute a record $450 million (€339 million) in aid to the Palestinians, whose economy has been devastated by international economic sanctions on the Hamas-led government, UN officials said Wednesday. About three-quarters of the $453 million (€341 million) being requested is earmarked for job creation, cash assistance and food aid, said David Shearer, head of the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. The UN is also asking for money to support the Palestinians health and education system. The UN plans to officially launch its appeal Thursday.
