It said in a report on the conditions in Gaza that the Palestinian refugees, who fled the Syrian inferno, were in urgent need of mobile homes and other relief assistance.

The report by the OIC humanitarian affairs department said that around 235,000 Palestinian refugees had left Syria and that more than 200 families had landed in Gaza.

It said that the families escaped because violent skirmishes were raging near their places of residence, adding that they were experiencing difficult living conditions.

Meanwhile, the report charged Israel with violating the calm agreement in the besieged enclave and systematically harassed fishermen at sea and closed the sole commercial crossing on more than one occasion, which negatively affected the supply of basic materials to the inhabitants of the Strip and worsened its local economy.
