The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) welcomed today UAE pledge to commence, as soon as possible, the reconstruction of the Jenin refugee camp destroyed by the Israeli occupation army in its recent aggression against the Palestinian territories. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and President of the UAE Red Crescent Society, RCS, said yesterday that the Society was ready to rebuild the destroyed houses and public facilities to enable displaced families to return to their homes as early as possible.



UNRWA Director of Information Sami Mushasha said that UNRWA Commissioner General Peter Hansen was informed of the RCS offer. ' He welcomed it and gave his initial approval. He will also call a meeting for the concerned parties to discuss the practical steps to the UAE initiative into action,' Mushasha said. In Jerusalem, the Emirates' Friends Society informed Hansen of the UAE initiative. RCS Board Chairman Khalifa Naser Al Suweidi disclosed that his society had made contacts with UNRWA officials in Vienna and New York to coordinate a preliminary action plan for the reconstruction of the camp. UNRWA provides education, health, and relief and social services to 3.9 million registered Palestine refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syrian, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
