MK Eldad: Deduct PA Debts from Tax Transfers

Member of Knesset Aryeh Eldad (National Union) called, Tuesday morning, on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to immediately deduct money from the transfers of taxes collected by Israel for the Palestinian Authority.

Eldad's call came in a letter to Netanyahu, following word that the PA owes 700 million shekels to the Israel Electric Company while paying salaries to terrorists who are jailed in Israel and the families of suicide bombers. Eldad said the debt to the electric company should be deducted, as well as money to pay the terror salaries.
