Finance minister: Israel weighing transferring PA tax funds

May 15, 2011 21:32

Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Sunday that Israel is weighing transferring tax funds to the Palestinians Authority.

After hearing of the Fatah Hamas unity deal, Israel had suspended the transfer of those tax funds at the start of the month fearing the money would end up in the hands of Hamas.

Steinitz said on Sunday, however, that Israel has since received some clarification on the matter, which could allow the funds to be given to the PA. He did not elaborate as to what that clarification might be.
