Mahmoud Abbas has sent a message to the US saying that he will continue to pay allowances to the families of prisoners and martyrs, even if it costs him his seat, Israel’s Kan news has reported.
“I will continue to pay them until my last day,” insisted the President of the Palestinian Authority.
Abbas met with Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, as well as the US President’s Middle East Special Envoy, Jason Greenblatt, yesterday.
