‘Immediate reversal’ – 90 countries demand Israel lift PA sanctions, restore terror funding
(Worthy News) – A group of more than 90 countries — the majority of them Arab, but also including European, Asian, and South American nations — signed an open letter on Monday, demanding that Israel lift sanctions recently introduced against the Palestinian Authority.
In late December 2022, the UN passed a resolution sponsored by the PA that urged the International Court of Justice to “render urgently an advisory opinion” on Israel’s “prolonged occupation, settlement and annexation of Palestinian territory.”
In response, the Israeli government launched punitive sanctions targeting the PA, including revoking special travel permits held by PA officials, withholding some $39 million in tax money that Jerusalem collects on behalf of the entity and distributing those funds to victims of terror and their families, deducting pay-for-slay money from PA tax money, and more.
