Qatar builds apartments for the poor in Gaza

The Bedouin encampment, a poverty-stricken quarter of the southern Gaza city of Khan Yunis, is located near new apartments built as part of the Sheikh Hamad residential city project. The first phase of the Hamad residential city project was inaugurated on January 16, 2016 with Qatar providing more than 1,000 apartments to residents of the Gaza Strip whose homes were destroyed in the 2014 war between Israel and the Islamist Palestinian movement Hamas.
