Palestinian Authority stipends to terrorists to be deducted from Israeli transfers

The Israeli security cabinet decided on Sunday to deduct from the funds transferred to the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah the equivalent of PA stipends paid out to the families of terrorists – roughly NIS1 million (app $370,000) as of March. Defense Minister Binyamin Netanyahu directed the security services to redouble their investigations into the transfers of funds to Palestinian terrorists and their families. Their findings will henceforth determine the size of deductions. The PA currently pays out around NIS 550 million in monthly wages to Palestinians in Israeli security detention and a similar amount to the families of terrorists who are killed. The security cabinet’s decision enforces the law jointly tabled by Avi Dichter, Likud Chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee, and Eliezer Stern, opposition Lapid party MK. They calculated that a total of four billion shekels (more that a billion dollars) had been paid out to Palestinian terrorists in the past four years.

    Just deduct other terrorist fundings.
    And then the outcome will be that IDF ought to confiscate material from PA as they need to pay more to israel as they gain from foreign sides.
    Why at all tranferring meney to the PA.
    Just let them starve until they pledge for Israel to rule the whole area.

    In addition to deducting the subsidies Abbas provides for incarcerated terrorists, or their surviving family members, the Israeli Prison Service should charge the P.A. for the costs of incarcerating terrorists, including food, building maintenance, guards’ salaries and other related costs. Also charge them for the cost of house demolitions, when those become necessary and appropriate!
