TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The money was brought into the Hamas-controlled enclave Sunday evening by the Qatari ambassador to Gaza and is expected to be distributed Monday or Tuesday, the official said on condition of anonymity.
More than 100,000 families will each receive payments of $100, he added.
Disbursement of the funds from post offices had yet to begin Monday lunchtime.
Another 15 million dollars would be provided for infrastructure and cash-for-work projects, the official said.
Around 80 percent of Palestinians in impoverished Gaza are reliant on international aid, according to the United Nations.
