Turkish government will finance a project for education and rehabilitation of victims of Israeli war in Gaza.
Jamal Al Khodari, head of the project, told AA on Friday that Israeli war which happened three years ago left hundreds of people wounded and disabled, adding that the idea of the project emerged as many disabled people were not able to integrate with the society due to post-war trauma.
The project had been presented to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan two years ago, and Erdogan immediately accepted to finance the project, said Khodari, adding that under the project, war victims would be given academic vocational education at a center.
Khodari thanked Erdogan and Turkey on behalf of disabled people, and said that Turkey helped Palestinian people unconditionally.
Israel initiated an attack on Gaza on December 27, 2008. Nearly 1,500 Palestinians were killed and 5,000 others were wounded in 22-day war.
