Ismail Haneyya, the head of the Hamas political bureau, said on Sunday that Qatar will exert every effort to put an end to the humanitarian tragedy the Gaza Strip has been experiencing for more than ten years.
During the ceremony of laying the cornerstone for the office of the Qatari Committee for the Reconstruction of Gaza and the house of the Qatari ambassador in Gaza, Mohammed al-Emadi, Haneyya thanked the state of Qatar for its efforts and projects in the Gaza Strip which strengthen the steadfastness of the Gazan people.
For his part, the head of the Qatari Committee for the Reconstruction of Gaza, ambassador Emadi said that the situation in Gaza is taking a turn for the worse, pointing out that efforts are currently underway with the United Nations, the Quartet and other parties to solve the power crisis which he described as “complicated”.
Emadi added that the Qatari Committee hopes that the power crisis will be alleviated soon after it has escalated dramatically in the recent weeks with only six hours of electricity available a day.
Emadi signed contracts for new projects worth 12 million dollars to reconstruct and support the Gaza Strip.
