Qatar in­jects more cash into Gaza for em­ploy­ees

Gulf Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Em­ploy­ees in the Gaza Strip be­gan col­lect­ing their salaries for a se­cond month yes­ter­day, af­ter Qatar pumped more money into the ter­ri­tory. The fresh cash in­fu­sion from Qatar comes as ten­sions along the bor­der be­tween Gaza and Is­rael have cooled in re­cent weeks af­ter a con­tro­ver­sial truce deal in Novem­ber halted a ma­jor flareup be­tween the Jewish state and Ha­mas. In Qatar’s op­er­a­tion, a to­tal of $90mn is to be dis­trib­uted in six monthly in­stal­ments of $15mn, ac­cord­ing to au­thor­i­ties, pri­mar­ily to cover salaries of of­fi­cials work­ing for the Ha­mas ad­min­is­tra­tion.
