RAMALLAH, November 2, 2014 (WAFA) – Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah Sunday urged the international community, particularly the European Union (EU), to speed-up the implementation of the reconstruction plan for Gaza.

During a meeting with European Union representative to the Palestinian Authority, John Gatt-Rutter in Ramallah, Hamdallah urged the international community, particularly the EU, to fulfill their obligations pledged at the International Aid Conference for Gaza Reconstruction, in order to enable Palestinians in Gaza to get by the harsh circumstances inflicted upon them, especially with the approach of the winter season.

Hamdallah called on The EU countries to take decisive steps to insure the protection of al-Aqsa mosque; to stop the Israeli violations against the mosque and Palestinians in Jerusalem as well as to stop settlers’ violations against Muslim and Christian holy sites.
