The Jordanian Engineers Association is planning to start a campaign to raise funds for the reconstruction of the West Bank city of Jenin and its refugee camp, Quds Press reported on Tuesday.

This came in a statement issued by the Chief of the Jordanian Engineers Association and Head of the Higher Committee for Construction in Palestine, Engineer Ahmad Samara Zubi.

According to Quds Press, Zubi said that the Higher Committee is planning to organise a campaign to raise funds to rebuild what the Israeli occupation forces have destroyed during their offensive on Jenin that started on Monday.
