Iran plans to hold a conference in support of Gaza at the beginning of March, and has sent out invitations to several regional leaders. The conference will be held in the capital Teheran March 4-5, and will be attended by senior Iranian officials and parliament speakers from several countries. Iran has invited officials from Bahrain, Lebanon, Nigeria, Oman, Sudan, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and Palestinians in the Diaspora. Nimr Hammad, an adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, said PA officials had not received a formal invitation to attend the conference. "I think they decided to do something at the same time that Egypt is organizing a conference for rebuilding Gaza on March 2," he told The Media Line.
