Knesset committee approves bill to deduct terror funds from PA

The Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee unanimously approved a bill to deduct funds transferred to the Palestinian Authority on Monday for a second and third reading. 

 

The deduction will be equal to the amount of funds the authority gives terrorists and their relatives.

 

The committee decided to reject the government's suggestion to exercise some flexibility on the matter that would have enabled the cabinet to decide upon a stalemate or cancelation of the bill.
