PA reportedly agrees to hold off on response to Israeli withholding of tax money until after election

Palestinian officials tell the Kan public broadcaster that the Palestinian Authority won’t intensify its response to Israel’s withholding of tens of millions of dollars in tax transfers until at least after the April election.

The decision is believed to be due to the assumption that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has limited political maneuvering space to grant concessions to the Palestinians in the lead-up to the election.
