Wow. You do have a serious problem if Payoneer isn't available to you. I'm not sure what to suggest. I think at one time there was a European service that was akin to Payoneer, but I can't think now what the name was.

See what others here say. :(

Edit: If you know of another Amazon author from Gaza, and you can contact them, you can ask how they're dealing with the matter.

If you don't have a bank account in a country where Amazon does direct deposit/EFT, their policy is to send a check after an author has accumulated $100 in royalties. This can take a while, and the check will be drawn in US dollars, which might be hard to cash. I have to wonder if it would even be worth it for you to publish on KDP, other than the pleasure of creating a book as good as you can make it and making it potentially available to the world (even if the world doesn't notice). Good luck!

It would have to be cashed at a bank where you live. The cost to do so by the bank might be excessive.

Money is sent to the account held by the publisher (you). Possibly she could open an account with her and your name on it.
There is the question of your address for end of the year tax purposes.

You might want to contact Customer Service below at 'Contact Us' and tell them where you live and ask them what your options are.

Hey,
I would suggest the modern mobile bank options. In Europe we have N26, I'm not sure if it's available in your country. You basically open a bank account in Germany, you receive a debit card and you control all your banking through the phone app. It's a great thing and very popular around here. I'm not from Germany, but I opened this account with no problem, but it's true, I am inside EU.
Have a look, maybe you find another similar option if this doesn't work out for you.

I hope that helps.
