The money was given by the Gulf countries and the European Union. Although the money wasn’t given by Israel, the country is still responsible for transferring it to Gaza. The salaries to employees of the PA were one of the reasons that caused Hamas to enter Operation Protective Edge. Therefore, Israel now allows a similar transfer every several months.
