Turkey to rebuild nine mosques in Gaza

  • The Turkish government will begin rebuilding nine mosques that were devastated during a summer 2014 operation by Israel, the media reported on Monday.

    The procedure for full confirmation of the projects that will be carried out by the Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) was completed last week.

    The Diyanet will supervise rebuilding efforts under the Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism (GRM), a temporary agreement between the Palestinian Authority and Israel that was intended to facilitate the import of essential construction materials into the territory following the cease-fire.
