Palestinian unemployment rate spikes to over 50 percent: ILO

GENEVA: The Israel-Palestinian conflict is pushing the rate of Palestinian unemployment in the occupied West Bank and Gaza to above 50 percent, the International Labour Organization said.

Already more than half a million jobs have been lost since Oct. 7, 2023, when Israel began a retaliatory military campaign in Gaza after Hamas militants launched deadly cross-border attacks, the new report showed. If the conflict continues until the end of March, then the unemployment rate will soar to 57 percent, it said.
