Despite the fact that rockets and mortar shells are still being fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip, Qatari cash will nevertheless make its way once more across the border through the Erez land crossing on Wednesday for distribution to needy families in the enclave.

Qatari envoy Mohammed al-Emadi announced Monday that 70,000 poor families will each receive $100 from the postal banks in Gaza as part of the so-called “ceasefire” agreement between Israel and Hamas that is violated on a near-daily basis by terrorists in the enclave.


On Tuesday evening, two rockets were fired at southern Israel, including one that was aimed directly at a populated center, but which was shot down by the IDF’s Iron Dome fighters. The second rocket landed in an open field in the Shaar HaNegev Regional Council district. One woman became injured as she was running to reach a bomb shelter in Sderot.
