RI to build school in Palestine

Indonesia will build a school in Gaza, Palestine, according to director of the Quick Response Action (ACT) Doddy Cleveland.

The school will be built on a 5,000-square-meter plot of land in Bait Lahiya, North Gaza, he said on Friday.

The ACT director, along with a group of Indonesian lawmakers, are visiting Gaza to hand over relief aid to victims of Israeli military aggression, Antara news agency reported.

The delegation, led by House Commission I Chairman Mahfudz Siddiq, consists of seven lawmakers, 10 journalists and a number of non-governmental organization activists and staff members from the Indonesian embassies in Cairo and Amman.

Doddy said that the relief aid comprises medicine and Rp 500 million (US$52,121) in cash raised by the Indonesian people.

“The medicine will be handed over to Al Shifa Hospital and the money will be given to children and widows of those killed in the Israeli brutality. Victims will each receive as much as 100 shekel [Rp 400,000],” he said.
