Fears of Israeli tax cuts loom over West Bank

Israel has withheld the Palestinians' money before and, as peace talks fail, many fear it will do so again.

    The occupied West Bank relies on foreign aid and tax collected by Israel on its behalf.

    But Israel has withheld tax money before and there are fears that, in the current climate of failing talks, it could do it again.

    A recent World Bank report put the cost of the Israeli occupation at $3.4bn each year.

    Palestinians say they could be economically sustainable if they had open borders and full access to their land and water resources.
