What can $ 100 buy in Gaza?

Thanks to Qatar's generosity, months of brainstorming, and talks between Egypt, Israel, the United States, and the United Nations, at least 50,000 families are in the enclave.

In addition to a $ 90 million grant to pay six months' salary to Hamas officials in Gaza, Qatar also said it would distribute $ 100 in cash to each of the 50,000 destitute families in the enclave.

In addition, Qatar Gazans, who were wounded in the weekly and often daily violence on the border with southern Israel, committed large sums and have already purchased the enclave and begun to supply additional fuel for their single power plant.

Three suitcases filled with $ 15 million in cash were flown from Israel over Israel's Erez Crossing to Gaza on Thursday, personally by Qatar's envoy Mohammad al-Emadi.

Violence continued at the border last Friday when Gazans hurled stones and at least two improvised explosive devices (IEDs) against IDF soldiers defending the security fence. Two terrorists tried to break the border.

A third terrorist – unarmed – managed to invade Israel and reached the community of Netiv Ha'Asara, where he set fire to a greenhouse before being taken by security personnel.

According to the Gaza Ministry of Health, at least one Gazan was killed and 37 others injured in the violence.

In the case of a "dog biting its hand," Gazaers even hurled rocks at the Qatar ambulance convoy to Gaza as he traveled around the area SAMA News Agency,
