I believe this happened because of the fact that the Hamas led government is in dire need of revenue.
The United States has all but suspended any aid to the Palestinians while Iran, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern nations have said that
they will send the Palestinians their much needed revenue, they may find it difficult to actually get it to the Hamas-led government (some kind of
World Bank 'red-tape' I think).
I was listening to NPR today and there was a discussion on the situation so I can't provide a link.
BTW, it's about time that someone makes a move to curb the violence in the region.
Preferably the ones who are in physical contact with the Israelis on a day to day basis.
