PA salaries to terrorists and their families
PA minister claims 550 million shekels have been paid to families of those killed in Gaza war, more would be paid if not for shortage in international aid
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Jan. 8, 2017
 






Headline: “Marking Palestinian Martyrs Day in Gaza – Al-Agha: A national strategy is needed…”
     “During the [Palestinian] Martyrs’ Day ceremony that was held by the National Committee of Martyrs’ (Shahids) Relatives and the [PLO] National Association of the Martyrs’ Families [of Palestine]… PLO Executive Committee member Zakariya Al-Agha gave a speech…
Al-Agha referred to the suffering of the Martyrs’ family members in everything related to the payment of their allowances (mukhassasat), and particularly the families of the Martyrs of 2014 (those killed in the 2014 Gaza War who are not yet officially recognized as “Martyrs” –Ed.) He noted that the time has come to put an end to this suffering, and called on [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas to make his decision, even though it is known that the financial situation of the PLO and PA is difficult. [Al-Agha added that] despite this, the Martyrs are a red line, and it is necessary to start finding appropriate solutions, when in the first stage, it is possible to pay an allowance of one Martyr to each family, while the transfer of the rest of the allowances will be completed if the financial situation of the PA improves…
[PA] Minister of Labor Ma’moun Abu Shahla gave a speech on behalf of [PA] Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, in which he conveyed the blessings of the government to the families of the Martyrs…
He saluted all of the Martyrs of Palestine, and at their head Martyr Yasser Arafat, and noted that the [Fatah-Hamas] national unity government is continuing to fulfill its role regarding the families of the Martyrs, as since the start of its term [in June 2014] 550 million (Israeli) shekels have been paid to the families of the Martyrs in Gaza out of 18 billion shekels [that were transferred] in the fields of health, education, welfare, electricity, water, sewage, and more. He said that if not for the scanty capabilities, the shortage in international aid, and the continuation of the rift (i.e., between Fatah and Hamas), the situation would be better.”
