Gaza is a funny placeUNRWA claimed in a tweet on Saturday that 'oppressed' Gaza has 252 schools (and 78 hospitals - a World Bank report puts that number at 30, still a lot for a small area).
Today, the number of schools has grown to 267. That's right - 15 new schools in a day.Efforts by Palestine Gov., UN agencies, NGOs, Int'l donor community for 2 years resulted in rebuilding 78 hospitals & 252 schools in #Gaza— UNRWA (@UNRWA) August 27, 2016
Did you know around 263,200 students will attend 267 schools in the Gaza in the 2016/17 academic year?#Back2School pic.twitter.com/ZCfhiv7SgO— UNRWA (@UNRWA) August 28, 2016
And by the way, it seems that UNRWA forgot to coordinate their numbers with the 'Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics.' The PCBS claims approximately 1.73 million 'Palestinians' in Gaza in 2014. The CIA gives the Gaza 'Palestinian' population at the same time as 1,816,379 (as of July 2014).
But the CIA says 44.7% of the 'Palestinians' are aged 14 and under. I think that means there should be a lot more than 263,200 students.
Hmmm. You don't think someone's monkeying with the numbers, do you?
And by the way, how are they re-building with that alleged Israeli 'blockade' in place?
