AL decries Israel’s decision to deduct from tax funds for Palestinians

CAIRO, The Arab League on Monday decried Israel’s decision to deduct from Palestinians’ taxation funds as a hostile measure.

Dr. Saeed Abu Ali, the assistant secretary general for affairs of Palestine and occupied Arab territories, said in a statement “this official embezzlement of the Palestinian people funds affirms that the occupation authority continues with its scheme to undermine the Palestinian Authority.” He called on the international community to exert “real and effective pressure” on the occupation Israeli authority to coerce it to stop the aggression on the Palestinians.” Dr. Abu Ali also condemned Tel Aviv’s plan to build 2,000 settlements in the West Bank and registering “settlement real-estates” in official records.
