U.S. Likely To Release $147M To P.A.
Republican Lawmaker, Representative Kay Granger, stated Friday that she will be releasing $147 Million to the Palestinian Authority, headed by Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank, after she withheld the money from August of last year in protest to the Palestinian National Unity deal. It remains unclear if the funds will be released due to another hold put by a different republican lawmaker.
Granger, member of the U.S. House of Representatives, stated that she decided to remove the hold on the money for humanitarian purposes, and to “help in creating stability in the Palestinian territories”.
