Algeria pledged $100 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority during a visit to Algiers by PA leader Mahmoud Abbas on Monday.

 

According to AFP, Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune stated during a joint press conference that the grant is "in keeping with Algeria's revolutionary history and the entire Algerian people's commitment to supporting the just Palestinian cause under any circumstances."

 

Tebboune also stated that Algeria intends to "center the Palestinian cause" at an Arab League summit it will host in March 2022.

 

Tebboune plans to host Palestinian factions for talks as well, AFP reported, citing Algerian television reports.

 

The meeting with Abbas comes two weeks after Israel and Morocco signed a historic defense agreement.

 

The defense agreement is the latest in a series of agreements signed since Morocco signed a historic agreement with Israel in January, which was ratified by the Knesset. In addition, the two countries have begun direct flights and signed a multimillion-dollar trade agreement.

 

Salah Goudjil, President of the Algerian Senate, stated at the time that the two countries' defense agreement "targeted" Algeria.
