The Palestinians continue to utilize the disproportionately massive amount of foreign aid they receive in order to support terrorism against Israel, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely wrote in an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal on Monday.

The Palestinian Authority’s payment of stipends to the families of convicted terrorists should make the international community rethink its donation policies, according to Hotovely.

“The Palestinian regime in Ramallah pays monthly stipends of between $400 and $3,500 to terrorists and their families, the latter of which is more than five times the average monthly salary of a Palestinian worker,” the deputy minister wrote.
