More than 1,000 Palestinian families have taken possession of new apartments in the first phase of the large housing project that sits on dunes that were part of the former Israeli Jewish settlement of Gush Katif. Huge portraits of former Qatari ruler, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, right, his son, the current emir, Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, and the Qatari flag hang on one of the buildings of the completed first phase.
