Kuwait on Friday sent $30 million in aid to the office of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a presidential aide said, the latest move in an international strategy to help the Palestinians while bypassing the Hamas-led government. Rafiq Husseini, Abbas' chief of staff, said the president would distribute the money to civil servants who did not receive salaries last month. The Hamas-run Palestinian Authority has been unable to pay full salaries to the government's 165,000 employees since Western donors cut off vital aid to the government after the Islamic group won legislative elections earlier this year. Israel and the West have demanded Hamas renounce violence and recognize Israel's right to exist.
