The Undersecretary of the Ministry of National Economy in Gaza, Rushdi Wadi, announced that during the recent aggression on Gaza, the occupation warplanes destroyed 16 factories in the industrial city east of Gaza City, 8 of them are completely destroyed and the other 8 are partially or severely destroyed.

During an inspection tour to the industrial zone in Gaza, he confirmed that the ministry has formed technical committees that include its staff and various industrial unions to start counting the economic damage.

He said: "The occupation carried out a barbaric war against factories and economic facilities in the Gaza Strip, and used internationally prohibited weapons to target them."
