Gaza Reconstruction is Muslim Nations' Responsibility
Speaking at an event organised by the International Union for Muslim Scholars (IUMS) on September 21, 2014, in Doha, Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal said that the reconstruction of the Gaza strip was a collective responsibility of all Muslim countries with the involvement of their leaders, governments and charity organisations.

Since 2006, Gaza has been subject to a blockade that, among other things, prevents the entry of construction materials, which can be used by militants to build tunnels and fortifications. The reconstruction of the Gaza Strip, devastated during 50 days of war with Israel, will cost six billion euros ($7.7 billion), Palestinian experts said.

The UN estimates that about 10,000 homes were destroyed in the fighting that began on July 8. Indirect negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis for a truce in Gaza resumed a Palestinian official said, as the clock ticked towards the midnight expiry of a three-day halt to hostilities.
