Terrorists' salaries were "deposited in the banks together with the salaries of all the other public sector employees" assures PLO

Headline: “Abu Bakr: The salaries of the prisoners, the Martyrs, and the wounded are [available] in the banks, and not via the ATMs”




“Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Minister Qadri Abu Bakr said that the families of the Martyrs, the wounded, and the released prisoners can withdraw their salaries directly from the banks, and not via the ATMs. This is when the lockdown period will end that was imposed to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus in the Palestinian districts; then the banks – like the rest of the institutions – will open their gates.


Abu Bakr said to Al-Quds… that the ATMs no longer accept ATM cards from the aforementioned groups, and that they all must contact the banks directly in order to withdraw their salaries, which were deposited last week together with the salaries of the public sector employees.


Director of Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs [Abu Bakr] said that the payment [of the salaries] was carried out directly from the state treasury, and not from the tax money that the PA did not accept because Israel is conditioning its transfer on the renewal of the security coordination – something that the Palestinian leadership refuses.


On a different matter, Abu Bakr noted that the work is continuing to establish a designated bank for the salaries and rights of the prisoners, Martyrs, and wounded, in coordination between the [PA] Ministry of Finance and a number of local banks. He explained that this matter not up for debate.”
