UN Envoy Welcomes Release of Palestinian Tax Revenues

Jerusalem, 18 April 2015

“I welcome the announcement that agreement has been reached that will allow Israel to release tax revenues, collected on behalf of the Palestinian Authority.

Withholding these revenues for over four months has undermined the stability of the Palestinian institutions and the ability of Prime Minister Hamdallah’s government to pay public sector salaries and provide needed services.

This agreement is an important step in the right direction for both sides.”
