Israel and the Quartet on the Middle East stated that their continued aid to the PA under a Hamas government was conditional on Hamas recognition of Israel, the disavowal of violent actions, and acceptance of previous agreements between Israel and the PA, including the Oslo Accords.

This reduction, if implemented, would have resulted in an increase in sugar and a decrease in fruits, vegetables, milk, and meat. The UN said that if the policy was intended to cap food imports, it would go against humanitarian principles.
