The call was aimed at males who want to teach in primary, prep and secondary schools.

Last year Qatar employed a number of Palestinians and liaised with Israeli authorities to allow Palestinians from Gaza to leave through the Eretz Crossing.

Applicants from Gaza who are blacklisted by Israel were advised not to travel, fearing arrest at the Eretz Crossing.
