The United Nations and Qatar signed an agreement for the resumption of Qatari cash payments to needy families in Gaza in a move that reduces the possibilities of another all-out war between Israel and Hamas. “Financial aid will be transferred to hundreds of thousands of Gazan people by the UN directly to their bank accounts, with Israel overseeing the recipients,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said. He announced details of the $40-million deal on Thursday evening, as did Qatar and the United Nations.

The announcement comes just one week before Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is scheduled to fly to Washington for his first White House visit with US President Joe Biden. Bennett is also scheduled to visit Cairo to meet with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi in the coming weeks. It’s the first public visit by an Israeli prime minister to Cairo since 2010.
