Unemployment rose to 39 percent of the workforce in the Gaza Strip as a result of the Egyptian destruction of underground tunnels between Egypt and Gaza, the Ministry of the Economy in Gaza said on Sunday.

“This means that the number of jobless people in Gaza has risen to 140,000,” Hatem Uweida, the ministry undersecretary, told a press conference.

He recalled that the unemployment stood at only 27.3 percent during the first quarter of 2013.
