The European Union plans to transfer 100 million euros to the Palestinian Authority (the PA's terrorist-led government).

According to a decision reached by EU leaders on Friday in Brussels, the funds will be earmarked for healthcare, electricity supplies and support for poor families in the PA. A mechanism to transfer the money directly to the targets of the largesse, bypassing the official Hamas-led PA government, is to be in place by early July, according to EU spokeswoman Emma Udwin.

The EU has included Hamas on its list of terrorist groups and has frozen funds to the PA since the Islamist group took control of the PA legislature in March. Previously, the EU contributed 500 million euros to the PA every year.
