EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Egyptian authorities on Monday allowed the entry of construction materials into Gaza.
Twenty-six trucks, including one truck of gravel and two trucks of iron, were allowed in to be used in Qatari-funded reconstruction projects.
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.
