Hamas has received $1 bil from Qatar since 2012 with Israel's approval, Haaretz reported. 

In 2018 alone, Qatar gave Hamas in Gaza $200 million for humanitarian aid, fuel and government salaries – and pledged to provide hundreds of millions of dollars more through United Nations aid groups.

About 44 percent of the money provided by Qatar during this period was invested in infrastructure, about 40 percent was used for education and health care – and the rest went to support Hamas and other groups in the Gaza Strip.

After the amounts of money involved began to rise, Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit held a meeting on the matter in which various government bodies, including legal and security authorities, were asked to examine whether it was possible to continue with the process of the huge transfer of funds without it constituting a violation of the sanctions against Hamas, which are in force because the organization is considered to be a terrorist group.
