Israel to withhold $43 million of Palestinian tax funds

Israel will withhold around $43m in tax handovers to the Palestinian Authority (PA) over allegations that the funds have been used by the authority to provide financial support to the families of slain or wounded Palestinian militants. Israel collects customs and other taxes on behalf of the Palestinians and transfers the money to the PA. In February also Israel had withheld the funds.

The expression "militant casualties" is a veiled term for "pay for slay" program, where the PA (AKA the peace partner) pays Palestinian terrorists or their families for murder of Israelis, the more the merrier. Finally, after many years of such disgusting practice, Israel has realized that encouraging terror is a bad idea and froze these funds.
