In a Tweet, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani announced that under the directives of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Qatar will provide $500 million in financial aid to support the reconstruction of Gaza.

"We will continue to support our brothers in Palestine in order to reach a just and lasting solution by establishing their independent state in accordance with the Arab Peace Initiative and the relevant international legitimacy references," he mentioned in the Tweet.

This grant comes to help the brotherly Palestinian people in the besieged Gaza Strip to face the life challenges posed by the recent Israeli attacks, and to contribute to the reconstruction of service facilities in Gaza, especially in the health, education and electricity sectors, in addition to the homes that were destroyed due to the attacks.

The grant also comes within the framework of the State of Qatar's continuous support to Palestinians, based on the bonds of brotherhood between the Qatari and Palestinian peoples.
