They take about 15 minutes to prepare and look so pretty on a platter that people think you actually spent a lot of time fussing. The recipe is versatile, too.

In addition to the former prisoners, 47 Hamas activists in Gaza were affected by the reported freeze in payments, with Hamas member Ayman Daraghmeh saying Monday the funds were not received due to "orders from above," Israel Hayom reported.
