Regarding Blinken’s demand that Israel hand over to the Palestinian Authority tax revenues it collects on the PA’s behalf, Netanyahu said the money owed had in fact been transferred to the PA: “It is sitting in their bank account.” According to the Times of Israel, Netanyahu said that the PA has not withdrawn it, however, he said, “because they insist that we give money to people in Gaza, and we don’t want to give money to people who helped or could help Hamas in the murders it carried out or will carry out. So we don’t give that money.”
