UNRWA helps repair houses in Gaza damaged by Israeli-Palestinian conflict

The United Nation Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees stated on Monday that it has begun disbursing monetary help to Gaza Strip residents for the rehabilitation of homes destroyed during the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in May 2021.

According to media reports, the UN agency reported that from January to April this year, $1.9 million was given to repair 602 partially damaged dwellings and sustain 555 families in the region through transitional shelter cash assistance. UNRWA also said that its staff have contacted around 700 new families to sign up for their repair entitlement of up to $1.5 million, which will be distributed through banks next week.

Egypt brokered a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip in May 2021, ending 11 days of violence between Israel and militant organisations led by Hamas, during which roughly 250 Palestinians and 13 Israelis were killed.

In the Gaza Strip, Israeli fighter jets struck dozens of buildings, destroying 1,650 homes and causing severe and moderate damage to 60,000 others.
