Abbas in letter to Putin: Israeli “pay-for-slay� law is meant to prevent PA from “fulfilling its obligations to the families of the prisoners and Martyrs, who struggled for the freedom of their people… and who are worthy of all aid�

      “PLO Executive Committee member and Fatah Movement Central Committee member Azzam Al-Ahmad received Russian Ambassador to the State of Palestine Aydar Aganin at his office in Ramallah yesterday [Feb. 23, 2019].
Al-Ahmad gave the Russian ambassador a written letter from [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas for [Russian] President Vladimir Putin. The letter deals with the recent developments and the cutting of part of the tax money by [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s government (refers to implementation of law to deduct terrorist salaries from the PA tax money; see note below –Ed.) in a way that contradicts the economic Paris Agreement (see note below –Ed.) that was signed between the two sides – a step that contradicts international laws and that is meant to blackmail the Palestinian leadership and exert pressure on it, in order to prevent it from fulfilling its obligations to the families of the prisoners and Martyrs (Shahids), who struggled for the freedom of their people and the end of the occupation, and who are worthy of all aid – regardless of the difficulties and pressures.”
