PA government declares budget "emergency," will prioritize paying terrorists

The official Palestinian Authority Wafa news agency reports that the council of government ministers decided to act as if they are in a state of emergency, and to prepare budgets and government activities for 2024 accordingly.

What does that mean?

They will "manage the available financial resources in accordance with the emergency situation, to ensure that the government fulfills its obligations towards employees in the West Bank, Gaza, and Jerusalem, as well as to prisoners and families of martyrs, according to available funds."

Yes, paying terrorists is a higher priority than providing basic governmental services.

The decision was announced at the end of the weekly Monday council meeting.

A couple of things to note. One is that the Council cannot actually declare a state of emergency - that is up to Mahmoud Abbas, like pretty much everything else.

Two is that, supposedly, the budget to pay "prisoners and families of martyrs" is supposed to be from the PLO, not the general government budget, and the PA has told the West that none of their aid dollars goes towards that fund. This announcement appears to contradict that assertion, and the ministers are saying that the PA is responsible for that budget. 

Which means they were lying all along.
