Kuwait-funded 124 housing units spring up across Gaza

­Kuwait has delivered some 124 residential units to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip as part of efforts to reconstruct a central village, the Palestinian ministry of public works said.

Six housing complexes comprised of 124 units financed by Kuwait have been opened, all of which will go to Palestinian families whose lives have been upended as a result of the 2014 Gaza war, the Palestinian Minister of Public Works and Housing Mufeed Al­Hussainiya told KUNA.

The project is part of a Kuwaiti grant worth USD 200 million to fund reconstruction efforts in the Gaza Strip, USD 75 million of which will be allocated for the housing sector, he added.

He went on to urge the international community to ratchet up support for the Palestinians, highlighting the enormity of the task to rebuild Gaza.
