Bahraini prince to visit Gaza on Thursday

Gaza City: A Bahraini prince will on Thursday make a rare trip to the Gaza Strip to open two UNRWA schools, sources close to the UN agency and to Gaza’s Hamas government said.

“Shaikh Nasser Bin Hamad Al Khalifa will come on Thursday to open two schools in Gaza City which have been funded by the Bahrain Royal Charity Organisation,” a source close to UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, said on Tuesday.

The visit was confirmed by Hamas sources who said the Bahraini prince, who is chairman of the Royal Charity Organisation (RCO), would also be meeting with Gaza’s Hamas prime minister, Esmail Haniya.

Haniya visited Bahrain earlier this year as part of a regional tour which also took him to Qatar, Kuwait and Iran.
