Qatar distributes second installment of funds to Gaza

While Jerusalem officials simultaneously threaten Hamas and attempt to reassure southern communities that their interests and security are of the utmost importance, the government permitted Qatar to begin distribution of its pledged-donation to Gaza residents. Doha’s Envoy Mohammed al-Emadi arrived in the Hamas-controlled territory this morning, where he disbursed a second installment of $5.5 million USD in cash to the impoverished population. The funds were divided among 55,000 families, each of whom received about $100 USD. While the Qatari Foreign Ministry was not immediately available for comment, the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office told TV7 that they do not respond to this specific report.
