Today (Wednesday), an official Israeli political source stated that despite what US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) is still paying families of terrorists convicted for murder. “Israel does not recognize any change in Palestinian policy,” the source said. “The PNA continues to praise, incite and encourage terrorism through payments.”

The statement was made following Tillerson’s claims during a Senate hearing that took place yesterday. Tillerson stated that the PNA agreed to stop the transfer of payments to families of terrorists.
