Despite US aid cuts, Palestine president gets $50mn jet
Reported purchase follows major reduction of US financial assistance to Mahmoud Abbas's Palestinian Authority

RAMALLAH, Palestine (AA) - The Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority (PA) has just bought a private jet for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli media reported on Thursday.

“The PA has purchased a luxurious $50-million private jet to be used by Abbas,” Israel’s Channel 12 reported.

According to the broadcaster, the aircraft -- set to be delivered “within weeks” -- will be stationed in Jordanian capital Amman for the Palestinian president’s personal use.

Funding for the plane was reportedly provided by the PA ($20 million) and the Palestinian National Fund ($30 million).

Notably, the reported purchase comes amid major reductions of US financial assistance to the PA and an ongoing economic crisis in the blockaded Gaza Strip.
