Mahmoud Abbas "determined that our last penny will be directed to the wounded and the Martyrs"
Official PA TV, live broadcast from the funeral of three assassinated Fatah terrorists who were planning an imminent shooting attack – see note below
Fatah Revolutionary Council member Abd Al-Ilah Atteereh: “Yesterday [Feb. 7, 2022] the [PLO] Central Council led by [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas] determined that our last penny will be directed to the wounded and the Martyrs, despite all the pressures that are being exerted on us from the Europeans, the Americans, or the Israelis, who tell us: Turn these salaries (i.e., PA salaries to imprisoned, wounded, and dead terrorists) into welfare allowances. In other words, we would turn the Martyr’s family into people who want to shop at the market. This is unacceptable and [the PLO leadership] adheres to supporting all the Palestinian people and the Martyrs and the wounded – they are in front of our eyes, under our responsibility, and in our spirit, we will not abandon them.”
Abd Al-Ilah Atteereh also serves as PLO Central Council member.
