Palestinians in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip began receiving payments on Thursday after Israel agreed to a new distribution system that includes the involvement of the United Nations.

Qatari envoy Mohammed al-Emadi said that payments of $100 would be made to “95,000 needy families,” reported AFP.

Israeli officials claimed that funds were going towards Hamas, rather than the poor. So now, Jerusalem must approve individuals receiving financial aid, who will withdraw money using U.N.-issued credit cards.
