Defense Ministry body: Qatari money in Gaza likely prevented disease outbreak

The Defense Ministry’s Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) unit is defending Israel’s decision to allow Qatari money to be transferred into the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, saying the funds likely averted an outbreak of disease.

“Gazan infrastructure has been improved & the likely spread of disease avoided due to money transferred from #Qatar through #Israel and into the #Gaza Strip. Disease knows no borders & it is to everyone’s benefit to see the continued improvement of civilian life throughout region,” it tweets.
