UNRWA agrees to begin rebuilding homes in southern Gaza Strip 14Mar11 March 15, 2011

The Palestinian Information Centre -  14 March 2011

The UN Relief Works Agency has worked out a solution for Palestinians whose homes were destroyed by Israeli aggression in Rafah and Khan Younis southern Gaza Strip.

The announcement came Sunday after demonstrators sitting in at UNRWA facilities in the south increased pressure by moving protests to the agency’s headquarters in Gaza city.

UNRWA has agreed to kickstart building operations by mid-May this year.

Protesters were complaining of a recent sharp decline in services and procrastination by UNRWA.

Since the intifada began in 2000, Israel has destroyed more than 2,700 homes in Rafah governorate housing more than 3,700 families. Thousands of other homes have been destroyed partially or sustained major damages.
