Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas visits Algeria and meets with Algerian President Abd al-Majid Tebboune, according to the official PA WAFA news agency.

Abbas has been on a diplomatic tour in recent days, visiting Russia, Italy and Qatar over the past month and meeting with heads of state. Abbas’s trip comes as observers fear the PA could face financial collapse due, in part, to dwindling external support.

In a joint press conference with Abbas, Tebboune announces that Algeria will donate $100 million to Ramallah’s coffers.

“The Palestinian-Algerian relationship expresses the Algerian people’s support for the just cause of Palestine,” Tebboune says.
