The Ministerial Committee on legislation approved a bill Elazar stern («Yesh Atid») for the reduction of funds transferred by Israel to the Palestinian authority, the amount the leadership of the Palestinian authority pays to terrorists and their families.
We will remind, last week Ramallah has suspended the payment of benefits to terrorists under US pressure and Israel. Earlier, during a meeting with Mahmoud Abbas during the visit to Israel, U.S. President Donald trump demanded to stop the payment of benefits to the families of «martyrs» and freed from Israeli prisons of terrorists.
According to estimates by Israel, the Palestinian authority directly and indirectly through the PLO annually allocates about $ 300 million on payment of benefits to terrorists and their families. It is 6% -7% of the annual budget of the Palestinian authority, much of which is formed by international assistance. The benefits included in the law on the annual budget of the autonomy.
