Reconstruction in Gaza, long delayed by lack of donor funds, finally begins

In March 2009, two months after Israel carried out a massive attack on Gaza destroying thousands of buildings and homes and killing some 1,400 people, international donors met in the Egyptian red sea resort of Sharm Elsheikh and pledged more than $1 billion to reconstruct the war-torn territory. But over the last four years, these donations did not materialize. Finally, the state of Qatar funded two projects that are now getting underway. FSRN's Rami Almeghari has more.
