JERUSALEM: ‘ ISRAEL TO RESUME PALESTINIAN TAX REVENUES ‘

#AceNewsReport – ISRAEL:March.27: Israel will resume the transfer of Palestinian tax revenues that it has been withholding as punishment for unilateral Palestinian actions, AP reported.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said Friday the decision was made following the recommendation of Israel’s security services and for humanitarian considerations.

Earlier this year, Israel withheld the tax revenues it collects for the cash-strapped government of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

The decision was made after the Palestinian Authority joined the International Criminal Court, potentially paving the way for a war crimes investigation of Israel.
