An international organization involved in assessing post-conflict reconstruction says it will take 20 years for Gaza's battered and neglected housing stock to be rebuilt following the war between Hamas and Israel.Any effort to rebuild Gaza will be hindered by a blockade imposed by Egypt and Israel since the Islamic militant group Hamas seized power in 2007 .In addition, it says, Gaza has a housing deficit of 75,000 units.Hamas, meanwhile, rejected Israel's demands that it disarm.Rocket fire from Gaza on Israeli cities then escalated, and Israel launched a massive air and later ground campaign.
