Ministers in the high-level security cabinet are expected to be presented tomorrow with a new Israeli proposal for allowing Qatari funds into the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, Channel 12 news reports.

The plan, aimed at enabling aid to reach Gaza without enriching the Hamas terror organization, reportedly calls for Qatar to send $30 million to the Strip each month, $10 million of which will be transferred via the United Nations and go toward fuel purchases.

The network says another $10 million in assistance for families will be sent to the postal bank in Gaza after affirming that they have no ties to Hamas, and the final $10 million will be put toward a cash-for-work program.

The proposal was put together in coordination with Egypt, according to the network. Cairo has been brokering long-term truce talks between Israel and Hamas following the 11-days of fighting in May between the Israeli military and Palestinian terrorists in Gaza.
