Israel Suspends Qatar Fund Transfer to Gaza

Israel suspended a funds transfer from Qatar to Palestinian employees in the besieged Gaza Strip, Israeli TV Channel 20 reported today.

According to the Israeli TV, the government claims that freezing the payment came in response to the firing of rockets from Gaza towards Ashkelon.

Former defense minister Avigdor Lieberman said:

Lieberman resigned from his position as Israel’s defence minister in November following a disagreement over a recently-signed ceasefire with Gaza.
