The Palestinian Authority paid more than NIS 512 million ($157m.) in salaries to incarcerated or released terrorists in 2020, Palestinian Media Watch reported Monday. The amount constituted 3.25% of the PA’s budget for last year, it said in a report. The PA paid about NIS 517m. to incarcerated or released terrorists in 2019, it said. The total amount paid to incarcerated or released terrorists in 2020 was more than NIS 512m. because those who had previously been employed by the PA continue receiving their salaries while in prison, according to PA budgetary regulations. The PA also has a “martyr’s fund” for the families of those killed while committing or attempting acts of terrorism. It includes monthly salaries, free education, insurance, medical care and more. PMW’s analysis of the PA budget found that it attempted to hide the terrorist payments, likely because of transparency required by international donors.
