CAIRO (AFP) -- A delegation of Arab foreign ministers, including those of Egypt and Jordan, will visit Gaza "soon" in a show of support for Palestinians, Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi said Wednesday.

The ministers will also assess reconstruction needs in the battered enclave after a nearly month-long war between Israel and Hamas, Arabi said.

"An Arab ministerial delegation will go to Gaza soon in solidarity," he told reporters.

The delegation, which is expected to expand, so far includes the foreign ministers of Egypt, Kuwait, Jordan and Morocco, as well as Arabi himself.

A 72-hour ceasefire took hold on Tuesday in the conflict, which is expected to cost the territory up to $6 billion (4.5 billion euros) in damage, said Palestinian deputy economy minister Taysir Amro in Ramallah.

A more precise assessment would be carried out once calm returns permanently to the overpopulated sliver of territory where more than 1,850 people were killed and nearly half a million displaced, he said.

Why have they been quite so far. Thier silence gave Israeli's more amunation to bombard in the knowledge that Arabs are not interested.

"Soon" is a VERY RELATIVE TERM used by cowards who won't, or dare not, COMMIT to do the RIGHT THING!
What? Are they waiting for the smell of burnt human flesh to fade&the WEEPING to stop? Body parts to be picked up &buried in the Negev with Israel's Depleted Uranium? O but, Israel's OCCUPYING there too,so it's Jews-only burials,right?
Maybe A/L is waiting for a Red Carpet? Well,there's ONE RIGHT NOW,fresh in Gaza. Made of innocent PALESTINIAN BLOOD! Zionist-proxy A/L COWARDS!Named &SHAMED!!
