Work­ers paid by Qatar again

The Irish Times - - World News - MARK WEISS

Civil ser­vants in Gaza re­ceived their salaries yesterday af­ter Qatar trans­ferred more than ¤13 mil­lion in cash with Is­rael’s bless­ing.

The Gulf state has promised to make six monthly pay­ments to alleviate the hu­man­i­tar­ian cri­sis in Gaza and Thurs­day night’s trans­fer was the sec­ond in­stal­ment.

The ar­range­ment is part of a wider deal, bro­kered by Egypt and the UN Mid­dle East en­voy Nick­o­lay Mlade­nov, to re­store quiet to the Gaza border.
