The Palestinian Authority has planned the construction of an international airport near Jerusalem and a port in the Gaza Strip.

The port will be built on the shores of Sheikh Ijleen in the southern Gaza Strip. Palestinian Minister of Transport Sa’di Al-Krunz said that France and the Netherlands had agreed to finance the project.

The Palestinian Ministry of National Economy said in September that the PA had lost up to $1.9 billion in lost revenue due to the siege of the Gaza Strip.
