Israel accused of 'tax theft'

Government has taken $2.5bn in taxes from Palestinian workers without social benefits.

    Israel is being accused of effectively stealing more than $2.5bn in taxes from Palestinian workers.

    A recent report by an Israeli NGO says money was deducted from the salaries of Palestinians who were working in Israel.

    The tax funds were transferred to the government to provide social services and benefits to the Israeli people.

    But many Palestinians had to pay without being qualified to receive any of the benefits, prompting the NGO to accuse the government of "theft".
