The article discusses the political issues about the rebuilding of the Gaza Strip. Qatar offered to renew diplomatic ties with Israel, expecting the latter to allow them to supply construction materials, medicine, and food supplies to the Gaza Strip in return, but Israel also offered the same for the region but Turkey refused such proposal. Hamas does not honor the legitimacy of the Palestinian Authority, which is planning to regain control of the Gaza Strip. Also affecting Gaza Strip are political issues in neighboring states and geopolitical arguments.
