Analysis: Donors threaten to withhold Gaza aid
7 October 2014 (IRIN ), Days ahead of a key meeting in Cairo on rebuilding Gaza in the wake of last summer’s bombardment by Israel, the prospect of forking out more millions has left international donors with a frustrating sense of déjà vu: they were in the same position in 2009 and 2012.
