7:34 pm
harder to come us after we were informed by the leadership of hamas that they would not accept the ground as an attempt to alleviate pressures on them it was decided to channel the money to other humanitarian projects in cooperation with the un and their systems to poor families or the improvement of electricity and sewage facilities trial struck for joins me now from gaza let's just begin with this money and this controversy is the issue of blackmail what are the what is how much talking about. what is talking about is the fact that there is an election in israel scheduled for april the ninth so has the cutter embroil ahmadi that describing it as being political brought by by the israelis we understand that the netanyahu government has been under a lot of pressure regarding this money that was being donated by full gaza the main sticking issue is the fact that
7:35 pm
a lot of that money. was was focused on the employees civil servants within hamas and of course there are numerous parties right wing groups in israel the see hamas as a terrorist organization and accuse netanyahu basically filling houses pockets with this money i think what's interesting though is certainly in the last couple of days we've heard reports that all the main security services in israel agreed that it was necessary to get this money to cause. through hamas as well they understand that this money was certainly being seen as a means of possibly calming the situation down his specifically looking at these friday protests. now it saves that as you say how nice a start to their guns they say they are not going to accept the conditions by which this money was to be transferred here it's reported that one of the conditions was
7:36 pm

7:37 pm
those incendiary devices launched on kites either it's understood that hamas saw or trying to control the situation here i mean i spoke to a hamas official yesterday who said the. older main factions here. are all committee to try to maintain this informal cease fire agreement with israel that was started last november so although we are seeing these protests out here again you can probably hear what sounds like live rounds being fired in the distance that the situation in relation to how it's been in recent months has been relatively calm the latest figures we're hearing from the ministry of health here in gaza as of about half an hour ago the least full people injured by live rounds and we've certainly seen a lot of people being taken away in ambulances we believe suffering from a gas inhalation who will even that child's trying to tell me gaza is rubble to
