Pakistan would extend all possible support to the reconstruction efforts in Gaza, and cooperate with Palestine, Special Representative to the Prime Minister on Religious Harmony and Middle East Hafiz Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi said on Saturday.
As thousands of displaced Palestinians returned to their homes after 11 days of intense Israeli bombardment, the devastating damages to the industry and power in the impoverished territory remain a daunting task ahead.
Talking to foreign media, Ashrafi said that PM Imran Khan was closely monitoring the latest situation in Palestine.
The important government functionaries were also actively examining the situation on the instructions of PM Imran Khan, he said.
