Abbas Threatens Israel Over Frozen Tax Revenues



Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas has threatened to stop security coordination with Israel if the country continues to withhold the PA’s tax revenue, a senior PA official said Sunday, according to The Associated Press.

Nabil Shaath said Abbas warned European leaders on a trip to Europe last week that Palestinian officials would discuss the matter during a Palestinian central council meeting next week, Arutz Sheva reports.

“We have told the international community that we will not be able to continue the security coordination and the Palestinian Authority itself may not be able to continue functioning if Israel continues stealing our money,” Shaath said, according to AP.

The funds have been held back from the PA since last month in retaliation for its moves to join the International Criminal Court (ICC). Shaath said the withheld revenue amounts to $140 million per month for the last two months.
