Secretary of Gaza’s Ministry of Housing Nagy Sarhan revealed that the donor countries honored only 60 percent of their commitments to rebuild the Gaza Strip, saying that they finished the rebuilding of five thousand housing units that were fully destructed during the recent Israeli war against Gaza.
He added that they received financial support from a number of countries, including Qatar, Saudi, Kuwait and Germany, to build two thousand housing units in the besieged strip. He said that Qatar decided to pay $ 20 million, while the delivery of money delayed due to the measures.
He praised the role performed by Saudi, Qatar and Kuwait to rebuild the Gaza strip, saying that a number of countries have not honored their commitments towards the strip, including Turkey, Oman and Emirates. He called the countries for performing a major role to rebuild the strip during the coming period.
He stressed the need for rebuilding the houses demolished by the Israeli attacks during the recent war on Gaza, saying that the occupation destroyed over 173 thousand housing units in the Gaza strip during the attacks witnessed in 2014.
He added that the UN agency for refugees “UNRWA” provided financial grant to rebuild the strip, blaming the administrative measures for the delay of its delivery. He added that similar measures prevented another Saudi grant from entering the strip
