The Luxembourg government and UNRWA will be working to assist in the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip and to push the process forward, Luxembourg’s Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn said.

In a press conference held in Gaza, Asselborn also stated: “I believe that this is clearly a humanitarian issue and is considered one of the top issues for the Palestinian people. We must not only be satisfied with reconstructing Gaza.”

“I heard that more than half of Gazans are under 18 years old. However, it’s impossible to find a job here even if people complete their studies and this is very negative.”

Asselborn also expressed his discontent regarding the confrontations carried out by the Palestinian youth in Jerusalem and Hebron, and stressed that violence should not be encouraged; rather, there should be calls to end it.

The minister had entered the Gaza Strip for a short visit to meet with ministers from the national unity government in Gaza via the Beit Hanoun crossing.
