Fatah: Anti-Pay-for-slay legislation is “theft,” meant to “criminalize the legal Palestinian national struggle against the occupation”

Headline: “The [Fatah] Revolutionary Council emphasized the importance of strengthening the internal front and aiding the [PA] government in this”

“The Fatah Movement Revolutionary Council, …in its summary statement published yesterday, Friday [June 14, 2019], emphasized… the unity of the movement’s position and national position to reject and fight the steps of theft that the Israeli government is committing against our money, through unacceptable deductions that not only harm the families of the Martyrs and the wounded, but also target them to criminalize the legal Palestinian national struggle against the occupation (refers to Anti “Pay-for-Slay” Law to deduct terror salaries; see note below –Ed.).

The council mentioned the honorable national position of [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas], the leadership, and the people in general in this essential and important matter, and called on the international community to fulfill its role and pressure the Israeli government to uphold its commitments and return our money without any deductions.”
