Qatar Fund for Development inaugurates the “Qatar Mosque” as part of the Rawabi City project in Palestine

Qatar Fund for Development inaugurated the Qatar Mosque in the Rawabi city project in Palestine in the presence of the Palestinian Prime Minister His Excellency Dr. Muhammad Shtayyeh and a delegation from the State of Qatar headed by His Excellency Mr. Khalifa bin Jassim Al-Kuwari, Director General of Qatar Fund for Development, and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bayti Real Estate Investment Company, which owns the project. The founding partner is the Palestinian businessman Mr. Bashar Al-Masry and the Mufti of Jerusalem Sheikh Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, in addition to important VIP’s from the Palestinian community.

The mosque was built on a total area of about 8,400 square meters, and the capacity of the mosque is estimated at about 3,000 worshipers, including one prayer room for men and another for women, in addition to a multi-use hall and various facilities. By opening the mosque, it will contribute to meeting the residents of the city and will play a fundamental role in reviving the city and neighboring villages, especially in important religious events.

It is worth noting that Qatar Mosque is part of the first phase of the project, with a total of 6 residential neighborhoods, which provide about 2000 housing units in addition to various office spaces and a commercial market with more than 100 brands. The project also includes various public facilities such as Rawabi Academy, the Grand Roman Amphitheater and public parks.

Rawabi is the only integrated city in the West Bank, as it was established in 2007. The city has also contributed to providing direct job opportunities for more than 800 Palestinian employees working to develop this vital project in addition to about 10,000 indirect job opportunities. The project also contributed to providing high-end housing units for people with income. The Mediterranean, in a modern style, contains all the important amenities for its residents.
