Palestinian Authority Leader Mahmoud Abbas

(Worthy News) - The German government has for the first time admitted that the Palestinian Authority likely grants financial support to terrorists and their families, and vowed to further investigate the matter.

Following repeated queries by an opposition lawmaker, the Foreign Ministry in Berlin last week also acknowledged that funds for so-called “martyrs” and Palestinian prisoners sitting in Israeli jails for security-related offenses come not only from the Palestine Liberation Organization but partially from the PA’s own budget.

Germany supports the PA annually with about €160 million ($179 million), but insists that the money only goes to specific development projects and not to so-called “salaries” for Palestinians held in Israeli prisons or to the relatives of killed terrorists. [ Source ]
