GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Hamas government in Gaza announced Tuesday that it is building new houses for public sector employees, an official said.

Abdul Fattah al-Zrai, a Ministry of Economy official, said 120 housing units are being planned at a cost of $1 million.

The government will help employees pay for their new homes with a series of loans based on their salary, which can be paid back over a long term period, al-Zrai added.
