According to a press statement by the Amiri Diwan, His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has given directives to provide urgent financial support to the State of Palestine.
This comes in line with Qatar's contribution amid global efforts to combat the outbreak of the emerging COVID-19.
Qatar's support toward Palestine in these critical times adds to its earlier humanitarian endeavors over the years, be it in the form of providing monetary aid, rebuilding houses, extending medical support, or advocating for the Palestinian cause at various international meetings.
Earlier this week, upon the directives of HH the Amir, Qatar also sent urgent medical aid to Iran to help the country combat COVID-19. Iran has become one of the hardest-hit countries to face the pandemic with over 17,300 cases recorded until now.
Meanwhile, Qatar continues to intensify its measures to safeguard the health of its citizens and residents.
