GAZA CITY, GAZA — The National Islamic Commission for Development and Social Solidarity (Takaful) announced the start of the implementation of a major health project in the Gaza Strip in a Nov. 29 press conference in Gaza City. The megaproject is funded and supported by the UAE Red Crescent Society.

Takaful is a humanitarian commission established in the Gaza Strip in 2013 by Fatah’s Reformist Movement in Gaza, founded by dismissed Fatah leader Mohammed Dahlan. Dahlan has been exiled from the movement since June 2011 and is currently residing in the UAE.
