US boosts Gaza aid by $30m: "Gaza City - Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas said on Sunday Washington was to give the Palestinians an extra US$30m in aid for water treatment projects, after talks with a senior US envoy.

'The American administration has kept its promise and is going to give us $50m to finance housing and job creation projects in the Gaza Strip,' said Abbas after talks with senior US state department official David Welch.

Last May, US President George W Bush announced that Washington would extend $50m in direct aid to the Palestinian Authority after holding talks with Abbas at the White House.

'It has also approved a grant of $30m for water treatment projects and is prepared to ask donor countries to offer more economic assistance to the Palestinian Authority,' said Abbas."
