PA Financial Crisis Leads Abbas to Visit Saudi Arabia
Times of Israel – Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is set to travel to Saudi Arabia in the next few days to rally the kingdom for money to relieve the PA’s grave financial crisis.
The PA will also send letters and official delegations to other Arab countries to seek aid. Its economic straits have prevented it from paying a portion of government employees’ salaries for the month of June. The payments are usually made by the seventh of the following month, Ma’an News reported.
