The Military aid that Gaza and the PA comes from Iran and Hezbollah mostly via tunnels that even Egypt has destroyed in an attempt to make them stop the attacks on Egypt itself.They both receive aid.Israeli foreign aid relates to the development assistance and humanitarian aid provided by Israel to foreign countries. Israel provides assistance to developing countries to alleviate and solve economic and social problems through its international cooperation program of technical assistance, based on its own recent and ongoing experience in developing human and material resources. Israel's Agency for International Development Cooperation, established as an agency of the Israeli Foreign Ministry in 1958 and known by its Hebrew acronym, MASHAV, is the primary vehicle for providing this aid.
In the 1970s, Israel broadened its aid agenda by granting safe haven to refugees and foreign nationals in distress from around the world. Since the 1980s, Israel has also provided humanitarian aid to places affected by natural disasters and terrorist attacks. In 1995, the Israeli Foreign Ministry and Israel Defense Forces established a permanent humanitarian and emergency aid unit, which has carried out humanitarian operations worldwide. In addition to providing humanitarian supplies, Israel has also sent rescue teams and medical personnel and set up mobile field hospitals in disaster-stricken areas worldwide.

Trump with Kushner whispering in his ear did cut aid to Palestinians, Kushner tried to push for all aid to be cut.
I tried to find the total for Palestinian aid but have given up on that.
It is know that they do not get military aid. I would suspect that the aid they did receive is far less than what was given to Israeli.
Most Muslim countries have stopped donating to Gaza and the PA having become aware in the past 10 years, or so, that the Palestinians want nothing to do with any peace with Israel.
Iran wants the destruction of Israel, and uses Hamas and Hezbollah as it main methods of achieving that objective.
Any help to the Palestinians by the EU or the USA, etc, attempts to have nothing get to Hamas, but again and again that does not happen.
The money is wasted on tunnels towards Israel and Egypt, buying anything to make rockets aimed at Israel.
These are some of the reasons why the US and others should stop helping the Palestinians, until the leaders come to the conclusion that they won't have the power to attack Israel anymore and will have to come to the table, as Egypt and Jordan did.
The difference between Egypt and Jordan....and the Palestinians is that the leaders of those countries cared about how their people were affected by all the wars against Israel, which left those countries in economic jeopardy .
The Palestinians, on the other hand, keep being given money, and more money and more things.
Yes, the people are suffering and dying in order to destroy Israel, but the leaders do not care.
The question is does Palestinians want peace and most would say yes
IF you add peace with Israel then some will say no
IF you ask Israelis do they want peace then they would say yes
If you ask if they want peace with Palestinians then they would say no
That is the situation which is the hate and mistrust from both sides.
Foreign players will play on that and fed on that mistrust. Until both sides can agree that they each have a right to exist then their never will be peace.
So that requires a leader who will be highly unpopular but see a goal that must be achieved.
