“The state of Qatar announces $500 million in support for the reconstruction of Gaza,” Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani tweeted.
“We will continue to support our brothers in Palestine to reach a just and lasting solution by establishing their independent state,” he said.
Several countries have pledged funds to help reconstruct Gaza. Egypt has said it will also spend $500 million on reconstruction efforts. The United States has promised $37.5 million in immediate relief to the Gaza Strip, with millions more in development assistance to be distributed later.
