mahmoud abbas breaking Israel news

(Worthy News) - The Palestinian Authority strongly condemned the Knesset on Tuesday for passing into a law a bill proposal to deduct terrorists' salaries from roughly $130 million in monthly tax revenues Israel collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority, defining the move as "a declaration of war on the Palestinian people."

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, said the PA considered the law a "red line" and threatened that its implementation would lead to "harsh Palestinian decisions."

"The Palestinian presidency strongly refuses to accept this severe decision, which damages the foundations of the relations since the Oslo Agreement to this day," Abbas' spokesman said. "If this decision is implemented, it will prompt important Palestinian decisions to deal with it." [ Source: Ynet News (Read More...) ]
