The Palestinians on Tuesday filed a complaint with the UN against the Israeli decision to freeze tax revenues to the Palestinian Authority. 

In a letter to the UN, Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour said that the Israel has “resumed the theft of Palestinian tax revenues in direct retaliation for the legitimate, peaceful steps taken by the Palestinian leadership in the pursuit of justice and for the purpose of protecting the Palestinian people.”

Mansour said that the Israeli decision “constitutes a blatant act of theft and of collective punishment.” He added that the tax revenues constitute the core of the budgetary funding for governmental institutions, including in terms of education, health, public safety and sanitation.
