Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz, the general supervisor of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques’ Campaign for the Relief of Palestinian People in Gaza, ordered yesterday the signing of four agreements with U.N. organizations to implement a number of urgent humanitarian relief programs in Gaza.

 

The agreements, which include more than $20 million in relief projects, were signed in Beirut today with the U.N. Habitat Program, the U.N. Developmental Program, the World Food Program and the U.N. Development Fund for Women.

The programs involve a wide range of services and aid material, including the construction of more than 100 housing units, the provision of critical medical supplies and occupational training for Palestinian women.
