Gantz approved aid to Palestinians

< p>

The meeting of Defense Minister Benny Gantz in his house with the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas caused a strong resonance in Israeli politics, but Arab politicians are satisfied. At this meeting, the order of assistance to the Palestinians was agreed upon. And according to the Palestinian side, this meeting was very important, as it was the & ldquo; last chance before the explosion & rdquo ;.

Agriculture Minister Oded Forer told Ynet studio that it was a mistake on Gantz's part to meet with Mahmoud Abbas. & ldquo; Impossible to hold the club at both ends. It cannot be that Abbas, on the one hand, challenged us and accused us in The Hague, now the IDF officers are being threatened because of his actions, and on the other hand, he is receiving respect from us.

When Avigdor Lieberman was minister of defense, he did not meet with him. On the other hand, Netanyahu took Mahmoud Abbas to Balfour. I agree with the plight of this government, but my position on this matter was clear – there was no need to meet with him. There can be no one who attacks us and leads to a situation where the IDF officers are threatened from the other side – it commands such respect. ''

Yesterday the meeting took place at the house of the Minister of Defense in Rosh HaAyin and lasted about two and a half hours.

The meeting was also attended by the coordinator of government operations in the territories, Major General Rassan Alian, the head of the security service Majed Faraj and the minister of civil affairs of the administration of Hussein HaSheikh.

Gantz announced today that he has approved the advance payment of tax payments to the Office worth NIS 100 million, adding 600 BMC permits for high-profile Palestinian businessmen and adding 500 such permit holders licensed to enter Israel by car.

Until now, only a few hundred Palestinians have had such permission. It was issued to doctors and businessmen, and now this number has doubled.

In addition, dozens of VIP permits will be issued for high-ranking officials of the Palestinian Authority. It was also noted that Gantz and Mahmoud Abbas discussed the need to approve additional Palestinian master plans.

According to Forer, the agreed line of economic assistance is actually the right step, but not the way it was done. “ I believe that the leadership of the Palestinian Authority is disastrous and corrupt. This is a crime family that has captured the Arabs living in Judea and Samaria, and our job is really to show people the economic horizon. It is in this sense that we should take the moderates and let them work and earn a living, but we should not meet with Mahmoud Abbas. The Minister of Defense can give permission to those Palestinians who have not been involved in terrorism. ”
