Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee approves bill to deduct terror funds from PA

The Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee approved Wednesday a bill to deduct funds transferred to the Palestinian Authority.


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


The bill's original draft, according to which there would not be any flexibility regarding the funds deducted, passed its first reading.


The bill was proposed by MK Avi Dichter (Likud) and MK Elazar Stern (Yesh Atid) and is expected to go on second and third readings next Monday.
