12.9.12.

The foreign ministers of the Arab League have agreed to provide ‘safety net’ payments to the Palestinian Authority totaling about $100 million dollars every month. The measure comes after Israel withdrew a similar sum it directs to the Palestinian Authority from collected taxes and payment, in response to the Palestinian application for observer status in the United Nations. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said the territory will come close to collapse without the money, as state employees have already endured wage delays.
