Security cabinet releases Qatari aid money to Gaza frozen by Netanyahu

The security cabinet decides to allow the transfer of $15 million in Qatari aid money for Gazans that was frozen by Netanyahu in response to an uptick in violence along the border, the Ynet news site reports.

According to the report, the ministers have unanimously agreed to let the funds go through at the urging of top IDF, Shin Ben, and Mossad officials.

The funds will be transferred into Gaza in the next 24 hours, the report says.

Netanyahu blocked the Qatari money that was expected to arrive in Gaza earlier today after an Israeli soldier was shot on the border of the coastal enclave last night.
