Russia on Saturday delivered $10 million (€7.9 million) in emergency aid to the Palestinians, bypassing the Hamas-led government by sending the money to the office of President Mahmoud Abbas. Abbas immediately distributed the money to a variety of humanitarian programs agreed upon with Russia, his office said. Palestinian officials said the delivery of the aid could serve as a model for a European proposal to set up a fund, administered by the West, to funnel humanitarian aid to the Palestinians without dealing with Hamas. Abbas' office said the money went to health and education programs, including efforts to control bird flu, money for high school graduation exams and assistance to Palestinian hospitals.
