Labor MK Isaac Herzog met with Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad in Ramallah on Monday and warned that the collapse of the PA would be "catastrophic" for Israel.

Fayyad told Herzog that Israel's continual withholding of tax revenues to the PA and the failure of donor states to transfer promised aid to the West Bank had the Palestinian Authority  on the brink of collapse."We are in danger of falling apart if you in Israel do not straighten up and understand that its impossible to leave us waiting [for tax funds] each and every month," Fayyad said in the meeting with Herzog.

Herzog stated that the collapse of the PA could not be allowed, saying that it would mean that "the IDF would have to go back to taking responsibility of West Bank cities."
