Israel Calls on UN Security Council to End PA Payments to Terrorists 



Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon asked the UN Security Council on Thursday to “take action” and call on the Palestinian Authority to stop paying terrorists for killing civilians in Israel, the JPost reports.
“In 2016, the PA dedicated almost $130 million of its budget to paying imprisoned terrorists. They spent another $175 million in allowances to the families of so-called martyrs. Altogether, the PA paid more than $300 million directly in support of terrorists every single year.” Mahmoud Abbas is telling Palestinians: “Kill innocent people and you and your family will be paid for the rest of your life.”
This amount, he said, comes to 7% of the PA yearly budget, and almost 30% of the foreign aid donated by the international community. “So many UN member-states are sending their people’s money to support terrorists….It is absurd to condemn terror, while at the same time paying terrorists.”
