Qatar pressing Hamas to accept Israeli restrictions on aid money – report

Qatar is pressing Hamas officials in Gaza to agree to the Israeli framework to receive aid from the Gulf nation, reports the Kan public broadcaster.

Qatari envoy Mohammed al-Emadi is reportedly pressuring Hamas to agree to the demands as soon as possible, which would see approximately $30 million transferred to the Gaza Strip in the form of a debit card-like system for needy families.

Israeli officials reportedly want the transfer to be complete before the Eid al-Adha holiday, which begins next week.
