Qatar is donating $1,000 to each homeowner whose house was leveled during Israeli terror campaign in the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian official has said.

Deputy Social Affairs Minister Omar al-Dari told Safa News Agency that the ministry would distribute aid coming from the Qatari Committee to Rebuild Gaza in two days and it was $1,000 for homeowner whose house was completely destroyed during the aggression.

"The government committee in Gaza will supervise the distribution of such help and the Social Affairs Ministry offices will distribute the money in its branches across Gaza,” he said.

He also said that the ministry was working on verifying and finalizing a list of names of homeowners in a transparent matter.

“It is an urgent aid to families who have lost their homes during the aggression to that it could rent a house for several months and buy necessary stuff.”

Israel started pounding the Gaza Strip in July 8.

The air, sea and land strikes by Israel have left thousands of people killed in the coastal sliver, including hundreds of children.
