"Peace Process": 40% of Gazans, West Bankers Risk Hunger

An AP report, from Haaretz (Israel).
Forty percent of the 3.6 million people living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip can't be sure of getting enough food, either because they can't get to it or because they can't afford it, the UN food agency [Food and Agriculture Organization] said Thursday.

I didn't notice this reported in the US press, typically, but such items can be and are reported in Israel. (The residents of the West Bank who are at risk of hunger, of course, do not include Israeli settlers.)
