Israel takes $141m in confiscated Palestinian taxes

Israel’s electricity company has been approved by the Finance Ministry to collect half a billion shekels ($ 141 million) from Palestinian tax money collected by Israel, a Hebrew economic newspaper reported on Sunday, Anadolu Agency reports.

According to the newspaper The Marker, a specialist in economic affairs, and Haaretz, the Ministry of Finance froze Palestinian tax funds, and transferred it directly to the Israeli Electricity Company to pay back debts accumulated by the Palestinian Authority.

The Palestinian government faces a financial crisis following Israel’s decision to deduct large amounts of tax revenues as a punitive measure for the PA allocating funds to detainees and the families of the martyrs.
