The Gulf state of Qatar has said it will give $50m (£28m) to the new Hamas-led Palestinian government.
Palestinian PM Ismail Haniya has been promised extra funds
Qatar said the decision showed its support for the Palestinian people.
The announcement comes a day after Iran said it was also giving $50m to the Palestinians to help them through a financial crisis.
The EU and the US withdrew their financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority after the militant group Hamas took office last month.
The Qatari sum represents full payment of the country's contribution to the £55m a month pledged by Arab leaders last month, the official state news agency said.
