GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Employees of ministries and other governmental offices in Gaza returned to work Sunday for the first time since the start of the Israeli military offensive on the Strip, an official said.

Ministry of Planning official Muamin Abd al-Rahim told Ma'an that Sunday was the first official working day in Gaza for ministries and governmental offices since July 8.

Abd al-Rahim said Israeli forces destroyed several ministry buildings in the Gaza Strip during the seven-week offensive, including buildings belonging to the ministries of finance, foreign affairs, and public works.

Other ministries including the interior ministry sustained damages, he said.

Additionally, Israeli forces completely destroyed 26 schools while 122 others suffered damages.

An agreement has been reached between the Palestinian ministry of education and the UN agency for Palestinian refugees to start the new school year on Sept. 8, he added.
