Nablus - Ma'an - An extra 800 shekels (190 US dollars) will be added to the stipends given to Palestinians affiliated with PLO factions in Israeli prisons this month, head of Palestinian Prisoner Society in Nablus Ra'ed Amer confirmed on Tuesday.

Each PLO-affiliated prisoner receives 1,000 shekels (238 US dollars) per month, plus an extra 300 shekels (71 US dollars) if they are married, and an extra 50 shekels (12 US dollars) for each child. The stipend is paid by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) each month.

There are currently 4,500 men and women registered as prisoners in Israeli prisons. The increase will be applied to February's payment, set to go through banks this week.

Amer explained that the increase was made following the instructions of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
