Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and UAE (United Arab Emirates) Information Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, brother of the UAE president, attend a ceremony to lay the cornerstone for a new housing project set to rise from the rubble of the former Jewish settlement of Morag, the first major construction project in the Gaza Strip since Israel completed its withdrawal from the territory last month, in the outskirts of the Rafah refugee camp, in the southern of Gaza Strip on Oct. 8, 2005. Work is due to start on Sunday on the Sheikh Khalifa neighborhood, named after Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, president of the United Arab Emirates, which is bankrolling the $100 million, (83 million) two-year project.
