The US House of Representatives voted yesterday to reduce the annual $300 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority “unless it take steps to stop making what lawmakers described as payments that reward violent crime”, reported Reuters.
The Taylor Force Act, named after a US citizen killed by a Palestinian in 2016, was adopted by voice vote with a bi-partisan majority.
The measure is intended to stop the Palestinians from paying stipends to the families of Palestinians killed or jailed by the Israeli occupation authorities.
