The salaries of Palestinian prisoners and the Israeli targeting

Israeli government continues to exert great financial pressure on the Palestinian Authority, as it decided to freeze the decision to punish Palestinian banks that open accounts for Palestinian prisoners, which may open the way for damaging these banks, closing them or looting their money by the occupation.

Last April, the occupation forces issued a military decision, enabling the occupation forces to pursue and punish all persons, institutions, and banks that deal with detainees and their families, and open bank accounts for them, as part of the economic war on the Palestinians, as well as to punish prisoners in prisons. Especially since the authority pays two months’ subsidies to the families of the prisoners, to enable them to live in dignity.
