People involved in the reconstruction said,
With the international pledging conference in Cairo, the war paralysis will finally end next week.
There, Abbas will demand $4 billion for Gaza, including rebuilding or repairing more than 60,000 families and 5,000 businesses.
Once funds have been raised, one of the United Nations agreements is to ensure that large quantities of construction materials enter Gaza despite the blockade.
According to the arrangement, Israel will gradually relax the restrictions, while Abbas-

Officials involved in the reconstruction acknowledged that the agreement was fragile.

In just over five years, the day war was the third war in the territory.
Many of the houses that were destroyed in previous battles are still not rebuilt.
In recent fighting, Israel launched thousands of air strikes against Hamas.
The group said targets and shelling of border communities had become outposts for militants.
During the war, Hamas fired thousands of rockets and mortars into Israel.

The prospects for real housing reconstruction seem mixed.

The arrangements made need unprecedented cooperation.
Not only between Israelis and Palestinians, but also between Abbas and Hamas.
At the same time, however, war has created a rare convergence of interests.
Israel wants long
Silent on the border with Gaza, its army chief of staff recently said he believes allowing imports of building materials and restoring livelihoods destroyed by border closures will reduce the danger of another war
Abbas also has the opportunity to end Hamas\'s seven-year-long absolute rule in Gaza by overseeing reconstruction.
Hamas militants could in fact allow Abbas\'s forces to appear on the ground, realizing that the international community would not help because the international community avoided them as terrorists.
Even before the war, Hamas was increasingly out of power as Egypt closed its smuggling tunnel to Gaza, causing the financial crisis.
Nevertheless, Abbas told close friends last week that he did not trust Hamas and was nervous about returning to Gaza without full control of the territory.
According to the solidarity agreement reached before the war, Hamas handed over power to Abbas --
The interim government, led by the independent expert, will not disband its security forces.
The fact that the coalition government has not yet set up stores in Gaza suggests Abbas is hesitating and prompting Hamas to accuse the Palestinian president of delaying time for more concessions.
\"We don\'t think President Abbas is willing, but he shouldn\'t,\" said Hamas spokesman Salah Bardawi . \".

Exchange of fire between Israel and Hamas
Donor countries face competing demands from other parts of the conflict --
The Middle East is devastated and increasingly frustrated by the apparent futility of investing in Gaza without a political solution.
The international community has pledged millions of dollars in aid to Gaza, but Abbas is seeking more.
Reconstruction costs $4 billion and $4.
As of 2017, he had provided the government with a budget of 5 billion euros.
Perhaps even more frightening than raising money is moving construction materials into Gaza.
According to the rules of pre-war Israel, trucks deliver consumer goods to Gaza through the Kerem Shalom cargo crossing point, but only international agencies can deliver construction materials, which requires cumbersome bureaucratic procedures.
Israel imposed restrictions to prevent Hamas from grabbing steel and cement for military purposes, such as bunker and tunnels.
Israeli suspicions were confirmed during the summer war when Israeli forces destroyed more than 30 attack tunnels under Israel --Gaza border.
Under the new arrangement, Israel will speed up the process to allow the private sector to import construction materials, but link these steps with strict monitoring by the United StatesN. and pro-Abbas forces.
This will include spot checks on some construction sites where contractors will lose lucrative contracts if they cannot state their materials.
Cabinet minister Isa said Hamas also agreed to dismantle checkpoints near Carlyle Shalom.
But after more than seven years of border closure after Hamas took over, it is hard for many in Gaza to imagine such a new era of goodwill.
The blockade paralyzed Gaza\'s economy, and even before the war, the economy in most parts of Gaza was affected.
