Around $12 million of aid donations will be distributed to Palestinians displaced by Israel's military offensive on the Gaza Strip last summer, a Palestinian official said Thursday.
Minister of Public works Mufeid al-Hasanyneh said that the United Nations Development Programme will distribute $6 million in $300 payments to those affected by the conflict.
Another $6 million will be distributed to Palestinians whose homes were destroyed.
Rent payments will be covered for a further four months for those who had already been receiving support, while rent for those yet to have received money will be covered for eight months.
The minister said he expects the money to be available early next week. more
