Palestinian Authority president pleads with Arab countries for financial support

The Palestinian Authority government has not received the financial support it expected from international and regional partners, President Mahmoud Abbas says at an Arab League summit.

“It has now become critical to activate the Arab safety net, to boost the resilience of our people and to enable the government to carry out its duties,” Abbas adds.

He laments Israel still withholding millions in tax revenue — to protest funds for Gaza which Jerusalem says may end up in Hamas’s hands — which he says has created a “dire situation.”
