(Worthy News) - Gaza border community residents represented by Shurat Hadin requested on Monday that the High Court of Justice block the transfer of $150 million in funds to Hamas that is expected soon.
Israel does not transfer funds to Hamas, but it has allowed Qatar to transfer the funds to pay Hamas-affiliated persons’ salaries and for rebuilding destroyed areas, starting with a $15 million transfer in November.
In a complex geopolitical game, Israel agreed to allow the transfers to avoid an economic deterioration in Gaza that would lead to a broader war. This comes during a time period when PA President Mahmoud Abbas has frozen or delayed payments to Hamas over internal Palestinian disputes. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
