PA sends letter to Trump administration rejecting US security aid

Official PA TV News, on the PA refusing US aid due to new US law

Official PA TV newsreader: "PLO Executive Committee Secretary [and Fatah Central Committee member] Saeb Erekat said that on orders from [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas, [PA] Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah sent a letter to the American administration in which he demanded that it stop the security aid, if the law called the 'anti-terror' law (i.e., the Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act of 2018; see note below) is implemented. In an interview on the [official] PA TV program Topic of the Day, Erekat said that the American administration officially received the letter four days ago [Jan. 16, 2019], but until now no response to the letter has been received from America.”
Official PA TV reporter: “At a time when the American administration is acting in Congress to implement the law called 'the terror law,' which gives it the right to submit lawsuits against states that receive aid from it, the [PA] leadership sent a sharp letter to the White House administration on the orders of President Mahmoud Abbas, in which it emphasized its relinquishment of Washington's security aid if this law is implemented."
