PA warned Paris that Gaza border clashes financed by Iran — report

The Palestinian Authority informed the French government last month that Iran was financing and encouraging the weeks of violent protests along the Gaza border, Channel 10 reports.

“Iran is fully financing and pushing the Hamas demonstrations,” the Palestinian ambassador to France told a government official last month. “The PA has no choice but to support the demonstrations because so may of the participants are demonstrating against the economic situation.”

While Ramallah does not support the Hamas-led protests, the Palestinian ambassador says the PA “does condemn Israel’s response, because most of the protesters are non-violent.”
