The US government is planning on an aid package worth 410 million dollars to the Palestinian Authority in a bid to bolster Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas ahead of a Middle East peace summit taking place next month in America, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth reports.Reportedly, half of the aid will be directed at infrastructure, while other sums of money will be channeled to the food and employment bureau of the United Nations Refugees Works Agency (UNRWA).

The aid package is the largest ever given to the Palestinians by the US. …Israel, a staunch ally of the US received 2.46 billion dollars in 2007, and has secured a 30 billion dollar aid package over the next 10 years.
