A United Nations report issued last week questioned whether Gaza will be 'a liveable place' in 2020, citing shortages of food, clean water, electricity, jobs, hospital beds and classrooms amid an exploding population in what is already one of the most densely populated patches of Earth. Seven years after Israel withdrew from the 139-square-mile Strip, and five since Hamas, the militant Palestinian faction, wrested control of its government, Gaza remains mired in myriad problems that plague daily life despite billions of dollars in international investment.
