PA Ups Payment to Terror Convicts, Despite 'Crisis'

Despite a reported financial crisis preventing the Palestinian Authority from paying its workers their full salaries, the PA has managed to increase the monthly payments it gives to terrorists imprisoned in Israel, according to Reshet Bet.

Those serving a sentence of up to 3 years in prison will get 1,400 shekels a month, while those serving longer sentences will get up to 4,000 a month.
