Since January 2009, the National Insurance Institute (NII) in Israel has discontinued the transfer of disability payments to more than 5,000 eligible Palestinian residents of the Gaza Strip.
Seemingly, the reason for stopping the transfer is that the Bank of Israel has halted all business with the Bank of Palestine and with all the banks in the Gaza Strip.
In this context, Adalah in cooperation with Al Mezan in Gaza sent a letter to the Directors of the Bank of Israel and the NII and to the Finance Minister demanding that they transfer all outstanding payments immediately.
