Arab foreign ministers on Gaza solidarity visit 'soon'

Aug. 6, 2014 7:23 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 7, 2014 10:41 P.M.)
CAIRO (AFP) -- A delegation of Arab foreign ministers, including those of Egypt and Jordan, will visit Gaza "soon" in a show of support for Palestinians, Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi said Wednesday.

The ministers will also assess reconstruction needs in the battered enclave after a nearly month-long war between Israel and Hamas, Arabi said.

"An Arab ministerial delegation will go to Gaza soon in solidarity," he told reporters.

The delegation, which is expected to expand, so far includes the foreign ministers of Egypt, Kuwait, Jordan and Morocco, as well as Arabi himself.

A 72-hour ceasefire took hold on Tuesday in the conflict, which is expected to cost the territory up to $6 billion (4.5 billion euros) in damage, said Palestinian deputy economy minister Taysir Amro in Ramallah.

A more precise assessment would be carried out once calm returns permanently to the overpopulated sliver of territory where more than 1,850 people were killed and nearly half a million displaced, he said.
