UNRWA announced Tuesday that Israel is going to allow them to carry out an agreement of the second phase of a Saudi and Japanese project to build housing for Palestinian refugees.
Adnan Abu Hasna, spokesman for UNRWA, said the UN agency is happy to announce the agreement for those projects which will help solve the problem of thousands of Palestinian families especially in the south.
He added that the agreement came after intensive communications and he expected the construction to start immediately. Engineers have started planning and tenders will be announced soon.
Abu Hasna says the agreement is for 733 housing units, including 259 which were demolished by UNRWA several years ago. The agreement will also include construction for 10 schools, he added.
