Israeli Government To Deduct Palestinian Terror Funding From Tax Transfers

1

Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu on Friday announced measures to stop the Palestinian Authority (PA) from financially supporting terrorists and their families by deducting money from its monthly tax transfers to the PA.

“The Palestinian Authority transfers funds to terrorists by various laundering methods; the more severe the acts of terrorism, the greater the amount of funds,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement, adding, “Prime Minister Netanyahu has ordered that the entire amount of support for terrorists and their families be deducted from the tax revenues that Israel transfers monthly to the Palestinian Authority.”

The move comes following two deadly terror attacks against Israelis within a 48-hour period in the Judea region near Chevron, killing 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel and 48-year-old Rabbi Michael Mark.
