Qatar to pay salaries of Gaza Strip civil servants following agreement with Egypt

Qatar will pay this month the salaries of civil servants in Gaza Strip following agreement with Egypt on the payment mechanism, reports say.
Per the agreement, Qatar will provide money for employees indirectly by buying fuel from Egypt.
Hamas, the ruler of the strip will sell the fuel and used the profit to pay salaries of its workers.
The salaries amount to $10 million a month, reports note.
The Gulf country has in recent years emerged as the leading supporter of Palestinians, mainly in the enclave. The gas-rich country has provided hundreds of millions of dollars to Gaza, amounting to some $30m per month since the 2018 Great March of Return.
