The JPost on October 7, 2021 reports that “Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Israel and Palestinian Affairs Hady Amr discussed payments to individuals imprisoned for acts of terrorism with Israeli and Palestinian officials”, this JPost piece misconstrues the issue at hand.

The question remains: when will the US and Israel condition funds for the PA on the cancellation of the pay for slay law, as stated below
