iran have offerd to pay hammas to fill its shortfall which it has just been struck with as israel put on punitive sanctions and with the US taking back a aid.
Hamas' refusal led to international condemnation and the withdrawal of US aid to the Palestinian Authority last week.

The Israeli government also froze the transfer of millions of dollars in funds to the authority - a move which the UN has called unhelpful and premature.

But on Wednesday, Iran said it would help make up the PA's funding shortfall.

"Khaled Meshaal's request for assistance to enable the [Palestinian] Authority to overcome the existing problems is noted by Iran and we shall definitely help them financially," Mr Larijani told reporters.
