Norway resumed direct aid to the Palestinian Authority with a US$10 million (€7.5 million) transfer, after it became the first Western country to recognize the new Hamas-led coalition, the foreign minister said Thursday. "We hope our contribution will help ease the social crisis the Palestinians are now going through," said Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere. He said the aid will be used to pay wages for civilian public servants. The United States, the European Union and others, including Norway, cut off direct aid to the Palestinian Authority last year after a government led by Hamas, which is committed to the destruction of Israel, took office.
