Netanyahu orders halt on Qatari funds to Gaza

Jan. 23, 2019 3:14 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 26, 2019 10:10 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered that Qatari funds that were scheduled to be sent to the besieged Gaza Strip on Wednesday, be halted, after an Israeli soldier was lightly injured by a bullet reportedly shot from Gaza a day earlier.

The funds were supposed to resume on Wednesday after a two-week ban due to incendiary balloons launched from the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli soldiers was reportedly injured after a bullet was fired from the Gaza Strip towards the border fence where he was deployed, shortly after the Israeli artillery shelled al-Breij killing one Palestinian and injuring four others.
