The Palestinian Authority's ambassador to Saudi Arabia lobbed heavy criticism at Iran on Thursday, saying the Shi'a country has not contributed to the Palestinian cause.

PA ambassador Bassem al-Agah, in an interview with London-based Arabic daily Asharq al-Aswat, said that Iran has failed to allocate money to the Palestinians.

"They have not built any schools for Palestinian children nor have they provided medical services for injured Palestinians," al-Agah said.

He continued, saying that the Iranians have issued fatwas against the "legitimate Palestinian government" and have not contributed to the Palestinian cause whatsoever aside from "political executions."
