GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The government in Gaza will start rebuilding ministries and headquarters destroyed in Israel's 8-day bombardment of the Gaza Strip, the cabinet said Wednesday.

A ministerial committee has been appointed to survey the damage and assess reconstruction needs, cabinet secretary-general Abdul-Salam Siyam said.

Offices of ministries destroyed in the war have been moved to apartments and other buildings to continue providing services to citizens, Siyam said in a statement.

Building material is expected to arrive in Gaza in the coming days, Siyam said, adding that Qatar-funded projects to reconstruct Gaza following Israel's 2008 war would resume.

Israel said it bombed over 1,500 sites in the tiny enclave in the 8-day war, which ended with a ceasefire on Nov. 21. It claims its targets were affiliated to Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip.

The week-long bombardment severely damaged civilian and government infrastructure, including water facilities, police stations, a bank, an athletics club, a football stadium, mosques, health centers and educational institutions, as well as hundreds of homes.

The civil affairs department of the Ministry of Interior was flattened by Israeli shelling, destroying 70 years of civil registry records.

Siyan said the government would issue new documents free of charge to all those whose papers were lost in the war.

The Gaza government will rebuild the FAJR-5 rocket headquarters too,
and then Israel will have to take them out again, regardless of how many Gaza civilians get hurt in the process.

@Tibi. You have no idea. Have a look yourself! They haven't 'just' destroyed government buildings but schools as well. Some of them are UNRWA schools which have just been built 1 year ago!

# 3 - how much money does Israel get each year from the US? 3 billion? 4 billion? and most of it goes to weapons. And a hell of a lot more powerful than M75 rockets. So what's your point?
