Senior sources inside the presidential headquarters in Ramallah revealed on Tuesday a “wide range” of diplomatic moves aimed at saving the Palestinian Authority, Quds Net has reported. The measures include efforts to release the Palestinian tax revenues blocked by the Israeli occupation authorities for the past two months.

According to the sources, the PA leadership is contacting all European countries to urge them to take steps in the face of Israel’s punitive action against the Palestinians. The PA has been unable to pay the salaries of its employees for the second month in a row.

It is hoped that diplomatic pressure on Israel will push the Netanyahu government to commit to its economic agreements signed with the Palestinians. These include the collection and payment of tax revenues.

Meanwhile, European officials have claimed that the PA crisis will ease within the next few weeks. The PA, it is said, will get more political and financial support to avoid any possibility of its collapse.
