PLO official falsely accuses Israel of paying salaries to Israeli terrorists

Headline: "The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners' Affairs: The murderer of Martyr Abu Sabha receives a salary from the occupation government"

"A report that the [PLO] Commission of Prisoners' Affairs published revealed that Israeli criminal Yoram Skolnick – the murderer of Martyr (Shahid) prisoner Musa Suleiman Abu Sabha (Abu Sabha had carried out a terror attack –Ed.), who died as a Martyr on the eve of Eid El-Fitr (i.e., Muslim holiday marking the end of Ramadan) in 1993 in the settlement of Susya after Skolnick shot him while his hands and feet were bound – received a large monthly salary (rawatib) from the Israeli government during his imprisonment (sic., Israel does not pay salaries to prisoners –Ed.), a salary from [Israeli] Social Security (sic., any Social Security payments would be some type of welfare, not a salary for what he did Ed.), and also received government aid for opening a business.

In the [PLO] Commission of Prisoners' Affairs' report it was said that the punishment of the murderer who executed Abu Sabha was reduced from a life sentence to just 8 years, after which he was released. His sentence was commuted by then [Israeli] occupation state President Ezer Weizman (sic., Weizman did reduce his sentence twice, but the decision to release him after 8 years was made by a parole board)…
The commission said that most of the Jewish murderers who committed crimes against Palestinians were released and received legal and social aid, and were given protection and immunity from Israeli governments and the extremist NGOs in Israel."
