Qatari envoy says letting Gazans work in Israel would calm border
A Qatari diplomat working behind the scenes to ease tensions at the Israel-Gaza border suggested that Palestinians would stop protests and sending incendiary kites across the border if Israel were to allow in 5,000 Gazans on work permits.

 

Qatari envoy Mohammed Al-Emadi floated the idea during an interview with Israeli public broadcaster Kane on Sunday.

 

Israeli and Hamas officials had no immediate comment on the Qatari proposal.
