Doha / Information Office / May 06
HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al -Thani has directed allocation of $ 480 million for brethren Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
This support comes to reflect the bonds of brotherhood and the ties of Arabism and religion between the Qatari and Palestinian peoples, in order to help the brotherly Palestinian people to obtain their necessary life needs in the difficult circumstances imposed by the Israeli occupation forces, and the decline in the international humanitarian support provided to them , and the related United Nations programs besides the continued inability of the Palestinian economy to fulfill its required role as a result of the crises and challenges it has faced over the past years, resulting in the failure to provide the basic services and basic needs of the Palestinian people in all age groups, particularly the health and education sectors..
The Palestinian citizen's need for education and health care are the most fundamental of the basic rights that the international community must cooperate to provide to all the Palestinian people in light of the continued Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and the denial of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to sovereignty over their land and resources.
The State of Qatar has allocated $ 300 million in grants and loans to support the health and education budget of the Palestinian Authority, and $ 180 million to provide urgent humanitarian relief support for the UN programs in Palestine and support electricity services to ensure access to the various sectors of the Palestinian people, especially during the holy month of Ramadan, and to meet the summer season in which electricity is increasingly needed.
Finally, the State of Qatar calls upon the international community and all its components to fulfill its humanitarian and moral responsibilities and to assist the brotherly Palestinian people to overcome the humanitarian crisis they face. The State of Qatar also reiterates its full commitment to stand by the brotherly Palestinian people for all their legitimate rights.
