UNRWA begins rebuilding Gaza homes destroyed in May war with Israel


The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said it has begun the first phase of building 170 houses in the Gaza Strip totally destroyed during Israel’s last year’s war on the Gaza Strip.

Melina Shaheen, director of the Information Office in the Gaza Strip, told A24 News Agency that 100 destroyed or damaged homes will be rebuilt next week in the second phase of work. She added that the reconstruction is a top priority for the UNRWA to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian People.

However, delayed rebuilding efforts in Gaza have frustrated locals, with many still living in temporary accommodation, a year after the end of fierce fighting The United Nations has said nearly 1,750 homes were destroyed or partially damaged, leading to the displacement of tens of thousands of Palestinians.
