BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Minister of Housing and Public Works, Mufid Hasayneh, said on Tuesday that Kuwait has approved a contribution of $2.5 million from the Kuwait Arab Economic Development Fund to help reconstruct the besieged Gaza Strip's infrastructure.

Hasayneh thanked Kuwait for its contribution of $2.5 million, which "aims to bring the Gaza Strip back to what it was on before the 2014 Israeli aggression."

He said efforts are continuing with other Arab countries to get more financial aid to meet the needs for Gaza’s necessary reconstruction.

The Kuwaiti fund will go toward rehabilitating damaged roads throughout Gaza.
