UAE President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has ordered a $3 million funding for the reconstruction of the Palestinian town of Huwara.
The initiative will be carried out by the Department of Municipalities and Transport in Abu Dhabi in collaboration with the Emirati-Palestinian Friendship Club.
In February, dozens of Israeli rioters set fire to homes, buildings and cars in Huwara. The rampage also killed a man, and came hours after a Palestinian gunman killed to Israelis.
Residents said the rioters also threw stones at firetrucks and ambulances carrying casualties. At least 100 Palestinians were injured in the attack, which Huwara residents said was the worst they experienced in years. ICA/Expat Media
