PA suffering "most difficult economic situation in years" due to aid cuts and "unfair" Israeli anti-terror deductions

Headline: “Shtayyeh discussed the agenda of the donors’ meeting with the Norwegian envoy and met with the British consul”


“[PA] Prime Minister Dr. Muhammad Shtayyeh received Special Norwegian Envoy to the Peace Process Jon Hansen[-Bauer] yesterday [Nov. 11, 2021]… and reviewed the difficult economic situation that the PA is undergoing, which is the most difficult situation that there has been in years. This is a result of the lack of external aid and the increase in unfair deductions by Israel from the tax money (refers to Israel’s Anti “Pay-for-Slay” Law to deduct PA terror salaries; see note below -Ed.), which will impact the [PA] government’s ability to uphold all of its financial obligations.”
