Israel begins implementing economic sanctions against Palestinians

Israel has begun implementing economic sanctions against the Palestinians, after threatening to do so in wake of their new bid to join some 60 UN organizations and recently announced unity deal between rival Fatah and Hamas factions, a Palestinian source told Ynet Monday evening.


He further told Ynet that Israel informed the Palestinian leadership of its intention to begin deducing debt owed by the Palestinians from tax funds Israel collects on its behalf as punishment for the recent moves.(Elior Levy)
