Fatah: Israeli bill to withhold taxes equaling sum paid in salaries to terrorists is “criminal aggression and unjust robbery”

Headline: “Fatah: The fact that the Israeli Ministerial Committee authorized stealing our money is criminal aggression and unacceptable”

“The Fatah Movement opposed the fact that the Israeli Ministerial Committee [for Legislation] approved a bill (The bill has not yet been passed by the Israeli Parliament –Ed.) to steal some of the Palestinian money that is designated for the families of the prisoners and Martyrs (Shahids). It said that this step is criminal aggression and unjust robbery of the Palestinian people’s money.
Official [Fatah] Movement Spokesman [and Fatah Revolutionary Council member] Osama Al-Qawasmi said in a press statement yesterday evening [June 12, 2017] that the Israeli occupation state and its government must stop this irresponsible behavior, which will only lead to additional tension and constitutes aggression against our people’s resources and interference in its internal affairs, which we adamantly oppose.”
