Our Israeli correspondent Abu Elvis has sent a machine translation of an Arabic-language article that appeared a few days ago in PalPress. I’ve done my best to clean up the text, and a section for which I have made an educated guess is enclosed in square brackets.
Abu Elvis notes that the market price for a bag of flour is some 3 NIS, and Hamas is selling it for 140 NIS:
Local sources: Hamas is selling flour donated by the people of Qatar for the sector for the amount of NIS 140 per bag.
Gaza, Palestine Press — Local sources in the Gaza Strip said that Hamas is selling flour and humanitarian aid to citizens that was donated by the State of Qatar and which the Egyptian authorities allowed to enter the sector.
The sources added that bags of flour sold by Hamas and made by Qatar as aid to the Palestinian people is valued at the amount of 140 to 150 NIS per bag, pointing out that the transaction is for the benefit of Hamas is evil and that [the Hamas movement is working against the public interest] .
It is noteworthy that the State of Qatar has donated large quantities of food and medical supplies to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip to help them in the face of ongoing Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip.
