(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) Gaza, May 22 (QNA) - HE Chairman of the Qatari Committee for the Reconstruction of Gaza Ambassador Mohammed El Emadi has signed new project contracts worth $12 million.

El Emadi underlined that the State of Qatar has been an honorable model of reconstruction through direct supervision of its projects, which has made these projects at top of other projects.
He added that the situation in Gaza is deteriorating, citing the electricity crisis, salaries cut and other problems threatening the population of the Strip.
