Amira hass :niente lavoro per le imprese edilizie di Gaza



Sintesi personale

Sintesi personaleLa Abu E'ida società per calcestruzzo e materiali da costruzione potrebbe vincere qualsiasi gara d'appalto per la ricostruzione di Gaza . E' la stessa che ha fornito il calcestruzzo utilizzato per l'impianto di trattamento delle acque reflue nel nord di Gaza, finanziato dalla Comunità europea, ed ha rapporti con la società israeliana Nesher ed altre aziende L'unico problema è questo: gli impianti sono stati distrutti da Israele Defense Force tra il 5 e il 18 gennaio . Erano situati nella parte nord-est della Striscia di Gaza, un importante zona industriale gazese che comprendeva: aziende agricole, stabilimenti per produrre cemento, ferro, apparecchi elettrici ecc. Ora ci sono solo macerie, carcasse di animali schiacciati a morte: persistente è l'odore di morte Secondo Ali al-Hayek, capo dell' Unione degli imprenditori e proprietario di fabbriche , "Non è stato un semplice soldato a provocare questi danni, ma un ingegnere. Solo un ingegnare sa come attaccare un edificio, far crollare completamente le mura senza far ricadere il tutto sui mezzi militari Una tale operazione richiede come minimo tre ore per ogni fabbrica"Hayek e il suo omologo palestinese A'merHamad, sono convinti che l'obiettivo era quello di distruggere l'economia di Gaza e impedire ogni prospettiva di ricostruzione. " L'esercito conosceva l'ubicazione di ogni stalla, di ogni industri e ha devastato deliberatamente e brutalmente"Hayek e A'mer Hamad sono tra i 17 Gaza imprenditori che saranno presenti Lunedì alla conferenza dei paesi donatori per la ricostruzione di Gaza, Essi riferiscono che l'IDF ha distrutto o gravemente danneggiato 600-700 fabbriche e laboratori in tutta la Striscia di Gaza. Dei 255 impianti di Gaza, collegati al settore della costruzione 63 sono stati colpiti direttamente - 29 sono stati ridotti in macerie e 34 parzialmente danneggiati , Il totale dei danni causati alle 63 imprese è stimato : 36 milioni di $.Secondo i calcoli effettuati da UNDP, l'agenzia di sviluppo delle Nazioni Unite, il totale dei danni ammonta a $185 milioni di euro.Tayasir Abu E'ida, uno dei fratelli e co-proprietari, è stato un candidato di Fatah nel 2006 . I fratelli e cugini, detengono speciali permessi di libera circolazione, concessi da Israele a un limitato numero di uomini d'affari. Nei raid israeliani anche le loro 9 case di proprietà sono state demolite e così hanno perso tutto: carte d'identità, computer, documenti ecc. In una delle loro abitazioni occupata dalla Brigata Golari, i militari hanno scritto . " Morte agli Arabi, vogliamo liquidarvi" e frasi di questo tipoNel 1950 e'60, i due giovani fratelli, avevano lavorato nel settore delle costruzioni e del commercio nel Golfo Persico, inviando tutti i loro guadagni a Gaza Inizialmente commerciavano agrumi , poi hanno acquistato terreni ottenendo nel 1992 l'autorizzazione israeliana ad intraprendere un' attività industriale. I loro figli hanno studiato negli Usa e alla fine degli anni 90 la famiglia di questi imprenditori ha cominciato a costruire case,dando lavoro a molti palestinesi Nonostante l'assedio hanno continuato ad investire: " ora ci sentiamo come se vivessimo in carcere: in piccoli appartamenti in affitto, la nostra famiglia è dispersa, guidiamo una vecchia Subaru che ci ha regalato ,per pietà un amico. L'unica consolazione: non dobbiamo un soldo ad IsraeleHaaretz ha chiesto all'IDF un commento: nessuna risposta

»The Abu E'ida company for concrete and construction materials could stand a very good chance of winning any public tender issued during the Gaza reconstruction process – if it ever gets under way. This family business manufactured the concrete and carried out the concrete works in the construction of Gaza's power station (under joint American-Palestinian ownership). It also supplied the concrete used to build the sewage treatment facility in northern Gaza, known as the "Blair project" because of the former British prime minister's role in securing the funding. After June 2007, this was the only infrastructure project in the Gaza Strip whose construction Israel allowed to continue. Abu E'ida's company produced and supplied 35-40 percent of all concrete used in the Strip before the crossings between Israel and Gaza were hermetically sealed that summer. The family, which has been in the concrete business since the mid-1980s, has ties with the Israeli firm Nesher, which also manufactures and sells cement, with the Shapir and Reichman quarries, and with companies in the metal works industry, such as Elkayam.Abu E'ida stood a good chance of being awarded rebuilding contracts. The only problem is that his company's plants were destroyed by Israel Defense Forces tanks and bulldozers sometime between January 5 and January 18. The pumps and the conveyor belts were demolished, along with the silo and the laboratory, the control rooms and the cement scale, the ventilation, electricity and water systems, the cement mixers and the trucks and cars. His four factories (two family-owned, two in partnership) were located in the northeast part of the Gaza Strip, in an industrial zone that sprang up on both sides of the eastern road, on the slopes of the hill on which stands I'zbet Abed Rabbo, the easternmost neighborhood in the city of Jabalya. Over the years, about 60 workshops, industries and packing houses were built along this road, manufacturing a wide array of products: concrete, iron, cinderblocks, tiles and electrical appliances. Interspersed among the industries were cowsheds, sheep and goat pens as well as chicken coops. The whole area was greened by orchards, groves and fields. Some of the industries, such as the plant that produced biscuits and ice cream, owned by the al-Wadeya family – who are also the exclusive distributor in Gaza for Tnuva, the giant Israeli food company – date back to the late 1950s and early '60s.«»According to Ali al-Hayek, head of the Palestinian Union of Businessmen and the owner of factories that manufacture cinderblocks, "It was not an ordinary soldier that blew up and destroyed all these buildings." Hayek, who has taken dozens of photographs of the different arenas of destruction, added: "Only an engineer knows how and where to attack a building made of concrete so that it will collapse completely, and not fall on the destroyers. A simple soldier will be afraid. This is an army that spent about three hours in every factory and demolished it or blew it up without coming under attack. It's not a five-minute wrecking job." Hayek and his counterpart in the Palestinian Federation of Industries, A'mer Hamad, are convinced that the destruction was directed against Gaza's economy and also against the prospects of reconstruction. "The army knew the location of every plant, every workshop, every cowshed, and with all its soul set out to destroy them," Hayek said.«»Hayek and A'mer Hamad are among 17 Gaza businessmen who will attend Monday's conference of donor countries for the reconstruction of Gaza, as part of the delegation put together by the Palestinian Authority, in Ramallah. With the conference in mind, they are busy making final calculations of the extent of the destruction. They will report that the IDF destroyed 600-700 factories, small industries, workshops and business enterprises throughout the Gaza Strip. Some were destroyed completely, others seriously damaged. Of the 255 Gaza plants connected to the construction industry (concrete, tiles and sidewalk stones, asphalt, marble, cinderblocks), 63 were hit directly – 29 were reduced to rubble and 34 partially damaged. "Partial" damage ranges from $6,000 to $1.5 million. Total damage ranges from $300,000 to $12 million (the latter sum was sustained by Abu Jiba's cement factory). The total damage done to the 63 enterprises is estimated at $36 million. Hayek and Hamad will tell the conference that even if all political obstacles are removed, the fact that the leading plants of the construction industry were destroyed will in itself delay the rebuilding process.«»Tayasir Abu E'ida, one of the brothers and co-owners, was a Fatah candidate in the 2006 elections. His brothers and cousins who share in managing the business hold special free-movement permits, which Israel grants to a limited number of businessmen. In contrast to the other owners whose plants were damaged, the extended Abu E'ida family lost not only its facilities but also eight of its nine homes, with their entire contents: furniture, clothing, computers, electrical appliances, documents, ID cards. Eight of the homes stood on the hill overlooking the concrete plants; the ninth – the first house to which the family moved, in 1972, from Jabalya refugee camp – is located to the west, in the heart of the I'zbet Abed Rabbo neighborhood. This same family home that was not blown up – only seriously damaged, its contents savaged – served as an IDF base for almost two weeks. The graffiti on the walls indicates that the unit was from the Golani Brigade (soldiers drafted in January and March 2008). The inscriptions left by the soldiers on the walls of this lone house that was not destroyed included, for example, "Death to the Arabs," "No patience, we want to liquidate them," "We shall return" and "The eternal people does not fear a long road."«
