PA withdraws from agreement to transfer Qatari money to Gaza

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has withdrawn from an agreement to transfer Qatari aid money to the Gaza Strip over concerns that banks could be exposed to accusations of financing terrorism, i24NEWS reported Friday.

Qatar’s envoy to the Gaza Strip, Mohammed al-Emadi, was quoted as having said that the PA’s announcement came through its banks in Gaza as the Gulf state was preparing to transfer funds to civil servants and poor families in the coming days.
