The United States plans to spend some of the money it took back from the Palestinians on a new medical program rather than let it get into the hands of militant group Hamas, US officials said Tuesday. The program to provide medical supplies and money for health care to the impoverished Palestinians comes as the United States is trying to maintain a hard line among allies against any direct funding for the new Hamas-led Palestinian government.
