Erekat Brands Israeli Sanctions as 'Piracy'

The Palestinian Authority’s (PA) chief negotiator continued on Friday to blast Israel's decision to stop tax money transfers to the PA, branding it “piracy”, according to The Associated Press (AP).

An Israeli official announced on Thursday that Israel would freeze the transfer of taxes to the PA, suspend participation with the PA to develop a gas field in the sea off of Hamas-controlled Gaza, and put a cap on PA deposits in Israeli banks.
