(Worthy News) - The security cabinet on Sunday approved the withholding of tens of millions of dollars’ worth of tax revenues from the Palestinian Authority as part of the ongoing struggle between Jerusalem and Ramallah over the payment of salaries to attackers and their families.
Israel said it will withhold around NIS 149 million (just over $43 million) from the funds that it collects on the PA’s behalf.
The figure is based on the Defense Ministry‘s estimate of the amount Ramallah has paid out to Palestinians killed or injured while engaged in terror activities in 2018 over and above the NIS 500 million ($144,578,030) already withheld over the course of the past year.
