Four Palestinian terrorists charged with bombing the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in July 2002 will have their monthly Palestinian Authority stipend raised, according to a watchdog.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), an Israel-based watchdog that monitors Palestinian outlets for anti-Israel and antisemitic rhetoric, says Wael Qassem, Wassim Abbasi, Alla Aldin Abbasi, and Muhammed Odeh will each be given a raise of 14.29 percent, from NIS 7,000 ($2,251) to NIS 8,000 ($2,572).

To date, the PA has paid the four a sum of NIS 1,034,500 ($332,637), PMW says, citing official PA documents.
