The money is earmarked for civil servants salaries, which the Palestinian Authority stopped paying as part of its economic sanctions against Hamas.
Qatari funds will be sent to Gaza on Wednesday, Beirut-based news channel Al Mayadeen reported on Monday night.

The money will be delivered on condition the relative calm would continue, Channel 10 news reported.

This report contradicts an earlier report claiming that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ended Qatari money transfers into Gaza because of recent terror attacks into Israel.

The money is earmarked for civil servants salaries, which the Palestinian Authority stopped paying as part of its economic sanctions against Hamas.

Earlier Sunday a drone with dozen of incendiary balloons launched from Gaza, landing inside Israel.

US President Donald Trump’s special representative for international negotiations Jason Greenblatt slammed Hamas on Monday night on Twitter for turning "toys into weapons to harm Israelis."

Greenblatt pointed out that the purpose was to target children, and that the drone used was created by students of the Gaza engineering college.

He called on the students who made the drone to "take responsibility," "pursue terror/go nowhere OR use knowledge to improve lives," he said.
