GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza's housing minister said Thursday that the United Arab Emirates has donated $50 million to build a housing project for Palestinians released from Israeli jails.

The "prisoners city," which will be located in central Gaza, will be named after the UAE leader Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, minister of public works and housing Yousef Subhi Al-Ghariz said.

Last year, Qatar pledged $400 million in reconstruction funds to the Gaza Strip, and construction material for the projects entered Gaza in late December, breaking a six-year ban enforced by Egypt and Israel.

Creating A "PRISONER CITY" IS just another
word for A "REFUGEE CAMP."

And, realistically, if we accept building more camps is needed,
then we should realize that emptying others camps is unlikely.

Sheikh Khalifa should KEEP his pithy(bandaid)$50 million,AND JUST PETITION THE WORLD COURTS & Israel to end the ILLEGAL,INHUMAN,COLLECTIVE PUNISHMENT of all PALESTINIANS in West Bank,Gaza&E/Jerusalem etc.You don't move civilian POW's from an ENCLAVED ghetto into a high-rise parole FAVELLA! END THE USG/ISRAELI BLOCKADE of POW Camp Gaza & the OCCUPATION OF Arab PALESTINE.Give all Palestinians freedom to move,work,earn,build their OWN homes!It's their RIGHT,&worth MORE than blood-money!

Makes it much easier to assassinate those released from Israeli prisons. Just saying.
