Rami Hamdallah new prime minister

RAMALLAH, July 28, 2014 – (WAFA) – Prime Minister stated Monday that an inventory of the gross damages caused to Gaza homes, installations and infrastructure would be prepared.

Hamdallah made his comments during a visit on the occasion of Eid el-Fitr, the Muslims festival marking the end of the fasting month Ramadan, to Palestinians being treated for their injuries they sustained during the ongoing Israeli aggression on Gaza at Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah.

‘Our Eid will be when we gain our freedom. Our people will remain steadfast and the occupation will end,’ said Hamdallah during the visit.

He expressed hope that ‘next Eid will come when we have achieved our dream in gaining freedom and the establishment of our own independent state of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital.’

He was accompanied by Health Minister Jawad Awad, Minister of Waqf and Religious Affairs Yousef  Ideiss, Governor of Ramallah and Al-Bireh Laila Ghannam together with a host of officials.

Hamdallah stressed that the Palestinian leadership maintains constant contact with state actors and international institutions to bring the Israeli military aggression on the besieged coastal enclave to an end.

He added that an inventory for all material losses sustained in the enclave would be prepared given the Palestinian leadership’s request to hold an international donor conference to rebuild the strip.

He called upon the international community, particularly the Middle East Quartet, to take an immediate action to oblige Israel to stop its massacres against Gaza population as well as its crimes, such as crushing and opening fire on peaceful protests, in the West Bank.
