Israel said to block latest Qatari cash transfer to Gaza

Israel will block the third installment of $15 million from Qatar to Hamas in the Gaza Strip next week, several Palestinian media outlets report, after a brief escalation in tension between terror groups and the IDF.

The Israeli Air Force Struck several targets in the Gaza Strip before dawn on Monday, after terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired a rocket into Israel, which was intercepted by the Iron Dome system.

Qatari ambassador Mahmad Al-Amadi has notified Hamas officials that he will delay his trip to Gaza that had been set for next week, until quiet is restored on the border with Israel, Palestinian media reported.

Israel had previously agreed for a total of $90 million to be distributed in six monthly installments of $15 million, primarily to cover salaries of officials working for Hamas.
