Jerusalem, 17 January 2016
"I take this opportunity to thank the State of Qatar for its relentless efforts and commitment to supporting the Palestinian people in Gaza. The completion of the first phase of this project is a significant step in rebuilding lives and livelihoods in Gaza.
The work of the Qatari Committee for the Reconstruction of the Gaza Strip in the housing, electricity, agriculture and infrastructure sectors is an important contribution to the effort of the international community.
On this note, I urge international donors to disburse their financial commitments made in October 2014 at the Cairo Gaza reconstruction conference.
The United Nations family will continue to support the efforts of the Palestinian Authority to work with all concerned in rebuilding Gaza.”
