Galei Tzahal reports that despite Israeli threats to withhold money if the Palestinian Authority doesn’t stop its UN bid for statehood, Israel transferred on Tuesday NIS 200 million (around $50 Million) to the Palestinian Authority to help them pay salaries. The money was paid from taxes collected o behalf of the Palestinian Authority.
One wonders why that money isn’t being used to buy more Iron Dome missiles which cost around $50,000 a pop, or build more bomb shelters, or to repair buildings damaged by the Palestinians.
