A senior Arab League official on Saturday said Arab countries have not delivered any of the more than $1 billion they pledged to rebuild Gaza after Operation Cast Lead. The money pledged in mid-January has been held up because of disagreements between Fatah and Hamas about who should receive donations, he said. Arab countries are waiting to see whether a solution to the disagreement is reached at an international meeting on Gaza reconstruction in Egypt on Monday. Saudi Arabia has pledged $1 billion for Gaza reconstruction, Qatar $250 million and Algeria $100 million.
