The Palestinian Authority has received armored vehicles from the United States after a long period during which it was not permitted to receive such vehicles, according to Ynet. Israel had denied requests to bring in the vehicles for years, due to the issue of tax money being used to pay the families of terrorists.
The Palestinian security services received ten armored vehicles from the US. Palestinian reports stated that the vehicles were transferred to the West Bank two days ago through Jordan, according to Walla.
The shipment arrives amid the clash between the PA and Israel surrounding the pay-for-slay policy and the PA’s refusal to accept tax money from Israel after Israel began subtracting the payments the PA pays families of terrorists from the revenue.
Ynet claimed that Israel’s decision to approve the transfer of armored vehicles may be intended to ease the criticism and frustration of the PA and to maintain security coordination.
