A Jerusalem court orders a Gaza Strip resident to pay taxes on some NIS 45 million ($13 million) that he won in Israel’s national lottery.

Diab Ibrahim Dib won the jackpot Lotto draw in 2015, but appealed against having to pay some 30% of his winnings to the Israeli tax man, claiming that he was not liable as a resident of the Gaza Strip.

However, the court rejects his appeal and orders him to pay some NIS 13 million to the treasury. He is also told to pay NIS 30,000 in legal costs.
