Qatar is to channel goods and materials to rebuild Israeli-blockaded Gaza via neighbouring Egypt, Qatari and Palestinian officials said on Saturday.
Egypt's Islamist President Mohamed Morsi and the Hamas premier Ismail Haniya, whose movement rules the Gaza Strip, discussed the project in a telephone call, the Palestinian leader's spokesman Taher al-Nunu said.
"The blockage of construction materials and equipment for reconstruction projects in Gaza has been completely lifted. That's what we were informed by the Egyptian president," Qatar's ambassador, Mohammed al-Emadi, told AFP.
He said that the materials would enter Gaza through the Rafah border crossing with Egypt.
On September 25, the ambassador announced that Qatar was to invest $254 million in Gaza, mostly to build roads, for housing, infrastructure projects and agricultural development.
