RAMALLAH, March 18 (KUNA) -- A delegation of Kuwait Red Crescent Society that started a two-day visit to Palestine on Saturday inaugurated 16 commercial stores in Jerusalem's old sector.
Renovation of these stores ended three months ago. The work was supported by Kuwait Chamber of Industry and Commerce, with KRCS's supervision and execution by Wafa foundation for development.
The stores are located in the butchers' market in Jerusalem's old sector where the occupiers sought to force the Palestinian residents to abandon their properties and flee.
Muhaisen Atawneh, Wafa's Director General, affirmed in remarks to KUNA that the Kuwaiti aid is necessary to help the Palestinians hold their properties and maintain their presence in the city.
The Kuwaiti delegation started a tour in the city ancient sector at Bab Al-Amoud, listening to merchants' complaints, visiting Al-Waqf authority, hospital of the local Red Crescent and Al-Aqsa Mosque. (pickup previous)
