Erekat: 'Israel to cut from PA tax revenues to give to Gaza'

Nov. 6, 2018 12:58 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 7, 2018 10:04 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO) Executive Committee, Saeb Erekat, attended a conference in Ramallah City, in the central occupied West Bank, on Monday, and said that Israel informed the Palestinians that it is going to cut money from the Palestinian Authority's (PA) tax revenues and transfer them to the besieged Gaza Strip.

Erekat talked about United States cutting aid to the PA and about humanitarian assistance to Gaza, as well as other measures aimed at separating Gaza from the West Bank.

He stressed "There is an American-Israeli project based on separating the Gaza Strip from the West Bank and Jerusalem to undermine the Palestinian national project and kill chances of establishing an independent Palestinian state on the June 4, 1967 borders."

He added, "Israel, under Benjamin Netanyahu, wants to replace the two-state solution with one state with two systems, or an apartheid regime."

It is noteworthy that the average value of revenues per month is about $180 million, according to the figures of the Palestinian Ministry of Finance, used by the Palestinian government to provide the bill of salaries of public service employees.
