Palestinian laborers work at the construction site of a house that was destroyed by Israeli shelling during Israel's war with Hamas last summer, in Johr El-Deek village near the central Gaza Strip, July 26, 2015. The house is being rebuilt as part of a Qatari-funded project aimed at reconstructing housing units destroyed during the war. Palestinian Minister of Housing and Public Works Mufeed Al-Hassayna said that the reconstruction process in Gaza has started, almost a year since the 2014 war. More than 100,000 buildings in Gaza were left damaged or destroyed during the conflict between Israel and Hamas militants.
