Billions needed to rebuild Gaza

Initial estimates suggest it could cost $6bn to rebuild infrastructure and thousands of homes after Israel's onslaught.

    Initial estimates suggest it could cost up to $6bn to rebuild Gaza's infrastructure and the thousands of destroyed homes.

    At least 175 factories were hit, and an attack on Gaza's only power plant left homes and hospitals with just a few hours of access to electricity daily.
