Jeddah – Safar 30 1429/ March 08, 2008 – Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz has ordered the reconstruction of all demolished Palestinian homes in Gaza as a result of Israeli attacks, Health Minister Dr. Hamad Al Manie said in comments published yesterday. Al-Manie made this statement while addressing a press conference in the Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh on Thursday in the presence of Palestinian and Egyptian health ministers. “The king has ordered the reconstruction of Palestinian houses at the expense of the Saudi government,” Al-Jazirah Arabic daily quoted the minister as saying.

Al-Manie did not say how many Palestinian homes would be rebuilt under the program. However, he pointed out that King Abdullah’s humanitarian gesture was in line with Saudi Arabia’s unwavering support to the Palestinian cause. Saudi Arabia is an ardent supporter of the Palestinians. Saudi Arabia has strongly condemned the Israeli aggression on unarmed Palestinian civilians in Gaza, using “unpaid weapons of mass destruction” it has. Five days of Israeli airstrikes and ground incursions in Gaza last week have killed at least 123 Palestinians, mostly women and children. The aggression translated into further threats by Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilnai to unleash a “bigger Holocaust” on Gaza. More than 350 Palestinians, mostly civilians, were wounded in the offensive with many of them left to die as Israel impeded ambulances. Last Tuesday night, Israeli occupation troops shot dead a Palestinian baby girl and a senior Hamas member in Gaza.
