Qatar will start disbursing a grant to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip tomorrow.

The Gulf state’s Committee for the Reconstruction of Gaza and Fund for Development will distribute the grant among “needy families” in Gaza in coordination with the United Nations. The process will take place at around 300 distribution centers throughout the Palestinian territory over approximately 10 days, Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
