RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (Ma'an) -- Saudi Arabia will donate $200 million to Palestinian municipal councils, Saudi media reported Sunday.

Saudi Minister of Municipal Affairs Mansour Ibn Mitib announced the funding at the inauguration of the 13th congress of the Organization of Islamic Cities and Capitals in Mecca, the Saudi daily Al-Riyadh reported.

The funding, allocated by Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, will help develop and expand infrastructure in Palestinian cities to support residents against "Zionist judaization and settlement attacks," the minister said.

It will be used for the maintenance, expansion and renovation of water refinement stations and power plants, he said, and to develop sewage refineries and improve hospitals and medical centers.
