GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Qatari government on Tuesday invited tenders for four construction projects, in the first stage of a $254 million project to rebuild the war-torn Gaza Strip.

Qatar's ambassador to Gaza Muhammad al-Imadi is heading a committee overseeing the work.

Consultants have been invited to submit designs for a city to be named after Sheikh Hamad Ben Khalifa al-Thani. The $30-million development will include 1,000 residential units in five-story apartment blocks, schools, stores, clinics, parks and entertainment facilities, the ambassador said in a statement.

Companies were also invited to bid for the repair of three major roads in the enclave. The 35-kilometer coastal highway al-Rashid Street will cost around $50 million to repair, and $18 million has been allocated to reconstruct the 10-kilometer al-Karama Street.

The 28-kilometer Salah Addin Street will be repaired first, at a cost of $60 million, as the plans and designs are ready, al-Imadi said.

In the coming days, consultants will be invited to bid for several agricultural projects, budgeted at $12.5 million.

Housing projects worth $32 million will also be announced this week to house needy families and to re-home those who were evicted for building on public land.

These "Gaza reconstruction bids" may come-in VERY EXPENSIVE,
since it is essentially impossible to import construction materials.

Why they don't demand their US friend to end the illegal Gaza siege, illegal occupation, land theft, administrative detention, kidnapping of Palestinians, torture and other war crimes? If they support the "rebels" and not the legitimate demands of the Palestinians and the democratically elected government of Gaza??

The most harmful consequence is that the Qatari petrodollars will do nothing more than poison the souls and hearts of the Palestinians of Gaza. It will tear families apart and sever the special connection between palestinians and the the soil of Gaza. People will no longer want to work as farmers or fishermen. This will change Gazans in a most profound way. I saw it in South Lebanon. If Israel destroyed the land, Qatari petrodollars killed the love that the villagers once had and shared.

Great !! So Hamas is going to sell off the beach front property to the Qatari's. In turn the Qatari's will build some low income housing for the displaced Gazans. Then the Qatari's are going to build luxury closed community on the beach which no on in Gaza will either be able to afford nor permitted to live. Way to Hamas !!
