The Security Council must “act immediately” to halt the flow of money from the Palestinian Authority to jailed terrorists, Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon declared on Thursday.
“Aid provided by the donor countries to the PA every year ends up funding terrorists who murdered innocent Israelis,” Danon said in a statement.
In a letter sent to the Security Council the previous day, Danon wrote, “According to Palestinian Authority laws and regulations, every terrorist arrested, tried and imprisoned receives monthly financial payments. The more Israelis killed, the longer the terrorist is sentenced to prison, the higher payment the terrorist receives from the PA.”
“A Palestinian terrorist who murders innocent civilians and is sentenced to over thirty years in prison receives over 3,000 US dollars a month,” Danon continued. “Put simply, this is official Palestinian blood-money, rewarding terrorists who murder Jews.”
