    Post offices in Gaza are distributing financial aid donated by Qatar to 94,000 Palestinian families.

    The money is part of an informal deal with Israel, negotiated by the UN, and that was agreed to in November.

    But the agreement, and the delivery of vital humanitarian aid, have been hindered by political interference in recent weeks.

    Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford reports from Gaza.
