Palestinian workers check bags of cement at a warehouse with security cameras to watch construction materials and for U.N. monitors to inspect periodically to make sure they are not diverted by Hamas for military use, while working in Shijaiyah neighborhood in Gaza City in the northern Gaza Strip, Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014. Several dozen tons of cement bags stored in a warehouse are one of the few tangible achievements so far of a $2.7 billion plan to rebuild war-wrecked Gaza Strip. The program was launched with high expectations at an international conference in Cairo on Oct. 12, but has run into obstacles, including wrangling between the rival Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah for control in Gaza and what officials say has been a trickle of promised aid.
