The Security Cabinet voted Sunday to deduct NIS 600 million from tax and tariffs collected for the Palestinians Authority, as it is legally required to do annually, so long as the PA pays terrorists who attacked Israelis. The amount deducted from tax collected is in a report by the Defense Ministry’s National Bureau for Counter-Terror Financing. It gives the sum of PA funds indirectly supporting terrorism, via the payments that go to Palestinians in Israeli prisons for committing terrorist attacks, or the families of Palestinians killed while attacking Israelis.

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, the official spokesman of Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas, referred to the Israeli government's decision to deduct 610 million shekels from the tax funds it collects on behalf of the PA as "theft of the Palestinian people's money."

On Sunday, the political-security cabinet decided to offset an amount equivalent to the amount the PA is believed to have paid out to jailed terrorists and their families over the course of the past year from the tax money that Israel collects on behalf of the PA. In 2021, the Israeli government offset 560 million shekels from the tax money, in accordance with the law to freeze terrorist funds.
