PA finance minister sends letter of appreciation to Israeli counterpart Moshe Kahlon Palestinian Authority Finance Minister Shukri Bishara has sent a letter of appreciation to his Israeli counterpart, Moshe Kahlon, following Israel’s decision to transfer 500 million NIS in withheld taxes to the Palestinian Authority.

In their meeting last week, Kahlon vowed to release the Palestinian Authority’s tax revenues in order to help it cover a deficit of 1.5 billion NIS, thus preventing a collapse of the PA. The Israeli finance minister also announced to his Palestinian colleague that Israel will issue thousands of additional work permits for Palestinians to work in Israel.
