Abbas: We won’t stop payments to ‘martyrs’ and prisoners

(Worthy News) – Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas vowed on Monday to continue funding Palestinian security prisoners held by Israel and families of Palestinians killed in attacks on Israelis.

Abbas was speaking during a meeting held in his Ramallah office with families and relatives of Palestinian “martyrs” and former security prisoners.

He was referring to the newly passed “Pay for Slay” law that allows Jerusalem to withhold tax funds to the PA as long as the Palestinians continue to pay terrorists and their families. He was also referring to the Taylor Force Act, a US legislative bill that proposes to halt economic aid to the PA until it stops paying stipends to individuals who commit acts of terrorism and to the families of terrorists killed in anti-Israel attacks.
