Gaza faces huge task of reconstruction

Shahed Abood (R), 7, and her cousin Ali (L), 9, look at some of the belongings they salvaged from their destroyed homes on August 11, 2014 in Jabalia, northern Gaza StripWith thousands of homes reduced to rubble and its infrastructure in ruins, Gaza’s reconstruction will cost billions and require at least an easing of Israel’s blockade to allow in building materials. Cement will be key among these materials, but its import will be controversial since it has been at the heart of an underground war between Israel and Hamas.

There also has to be cement, lots of it, and the Palestinian enclave is suffering a chronic shortage of this crucial construction material.
