Bennett: No more suitcases of cash for Hamas in Gaza
Prior to the 11-day Gaza war, Qatar had provided $30 million in cash payments to Hamas controlled bodies in Gaza for distribution as $100 cash grants to needy families.

Hamas must no longer receive cash-filled suitcases, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett told the cabinet Sunday, ahead of a special donor meeting on Palestinian humanitarian assistance, including the Gaza Strip, scheduled for Tuesday. “We are also working on a solution that will allow humanitarian assistance to the residents of Gaza, but without suitcases full of dollars,” he said. “Suitcases full of dollars are something we inherited, and they need to be done away with.”

Prior to the 11-day Gaza war in May, Qatar provided $30 million in cash payments to Hamas-controlled bodies in the Gaza Strip for distribution as $100 cash grants to needy families. Yahye Sinwar, Hamas’s leader in Gaza, has called for the resumption of those payments and warned of a resumption of violence without them. Israel is loath to allow money back into Gaza out of concern that it will be diverted to Hamas for military purposes.

Is it really a warning if everyone knows that you're going to resume violence whether things go your way or not?

Not a lot of teeth in that threat.
