Palestinian volunteers and municipal workers clear the rubble of the buildings, recently destroyed by Israeli strikes, in Gaza City on May 26, 2021 after a cease-fire ending 11 days of deadly violence between Israel and the Palestinian Hamas movement. Gaza’s housing ministry said that 16,800 housing units had been damaged. Of those, 1,800 had become unfit for living and 1,000 were destroyed completely. US top diplomat Antony Blinken vowed support to help rebuild the battered Gaza Strip and shore up a truce between Hamas and Israel, but insisted the territory's Islamist militant rulers would not benefit from any aid.
