Gaza: Egypt set to hold Gaza conference

Xinhua reports Egypt has offered to host an international conference in March for the reconstruction of Gaza Strip that was hit seriously in a recent 22-day Israeli military operation, Egyptian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

Egypt will invite parties concerned to participate in the conference slated for March in Cairo, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki said in a press release, without elaborating the exact date for the meeting.

A number of countries and international donor organizations will be invited to attend the conference to help rebuild Gaza, where some 1,400 Palestinians were killed and 5,500 others wounded in the Israeli attacks, said Zaki.
