GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Ministry of Public Works will begin work to "limit the damage" of the Israeli offensive on Sunday, Palestinian public works minister Mufeed al-Hasayneh said Friday.

The minister said in a statement that a committee consisting of members from top UN relief organizations UNDP, UNRWA, and OCHA and supervised by the ministry would begin work on reconstruction.

Al-Hasayneh added that the committee planned to work in all districts of Gaza, "starting from Beit Hanoun in the north to Rafah in the south," and that damaged housing units would be repaired.

The statement said the ministry will cooperate with all partners in the reconstruction field.
