Qatari funds to be transferred into Gaza through bank payments

March 10, 2019 1:05 P.M. (Updated: March 12, 2019 2:09 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The next payment of Qatari financial funds to Hamas officials in the besieged Gaza Strip will be transferred under the form of payment for "authorized projects" through bank transfers instead of briefcases, on Sunday.

According to Haaretz news outlet, the financial aid will be transferred as payment for "authorized projects," instead of briefcases, which were previously used to allow entry of financial funds to Gaza.

Sources also mentioned that Israeli defense officials are concerned about "possible violent escalation" in Gaza and the West Bank due to the upcoming anniversary of "The Great March of Return" weekly protests along the eastern borders of Gaza.
The majority of the nearly two million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are sealed inside the coastal enclave due to the continuation of the military blockade imposed by Israel and upheld by Egypt on the southern border.

Gaza's residents endure distressing living conditions, including a shortage of safe drinking water and regular power cuts, partly due to a lack of fuel for Gaza's power plant, as well as receiving an average of just four hours of electricity per day.

The destruction from three Israeli offensives over the past six years, including damage to the enclave's water, sanitation, energy, and medical facilities, coupled with slow reconstruction due to the blockade led the UN to warn that Gaza could be "uninhabitable" by 2020.
