The Official Palestinian newspaper Jerusalem Times has published that Saudi Arabia and Iraq are continuing to financially assist the families of suicide bombers. The family of a Palestinian killed by IDF forces while attempting to carry out a terrorist attack will receive $10,000, while families of suicide bombers will receive $25,000. This funding of Palestinian terror encourages suicide bombings in light of the tough economic reality of the Palestinian population. The transfer of money to the families strengthens the dependency between the Palestinian Authority and Saudi Arabia and Iraq, and causes an increase in Saddam Hussein's popularity among the Palestinian nation.
