Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is paying for the construction of the Arab Higher Monitoring Committee's new offices, Israeli-Arab newspaper Bokra reported on Thursday evening.

An official from the Committee told Bokra that Libya and other Arab countries plan to transfer funds to the Committee so they can build new offices.

The Committee reportedly plans to found a non-profit organization next week, to which Libya can send money.

Bokra did not report how much money Gaddafi plans to send.

Accourding to the report, the Libyan leader made the offer after Israeli-Arab officials visited Lybia in April, and met with Gaddafi. Committee Chairman Muhammad Zidan has reportedly been in contact with Libya's ambassador in Jordan since the trip.

Zidan mentioned a plan for Gaddafi to donate to the Committee in a previous interview with Bokra, but said that it was not final.
