4- The process of removing the rubble of destroyed buildings and facilities.

Obstacles to the actual reconstruction of the Gaza Strip:


1- Israel’s refusal to enter various reconstruction materials except under certain conditions related to the prisoners held by Hamas since 2014.



2- Not organizing and holding a reconstruction conference and not fulfilling the countries that promised aid to Gaza except through the Palestinian Authority, which is rejected by Hamas , the government and the factions in Gaza.



3- Restrictions imposed by the Palestinian Authority on the Gaza Strip and linking reconstruction to the entry of any funds or aid from its gates.



4- The American veto on the entry of any aid to the Gaza Strip through the gate of Hamas and the Gaza government to prevent the latter from benefiting from any of this aid.



Hamas’ reaction to the refusal to bring in funds for the reconstruction of Gaza through it:


“I affirm our commitment in Hamas that we will not take a single penny that came for reconstruction in the Gaza Strip. The movement will make sure that not a penny goes to Hamas or the Qassam Brigades.”
(Yahya Sinwar)
Sinwar spoke to the international community in his first meeting with journalists in Gaza after the end of the last war. Sinwar’s remarks came in response to the US administration, which stipulated that its support for the Gaza reconstruction process be in partnership with the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah. Together with the United Nations, Egypt and the Gulf states, Washington has said it will work to ensure that reconstruction funds are transferred to Gaza while ensuring that Hamas does not benefit from the $360 million Washington has pledged for Palestinian reconstruction and development.
