Palestinian terror groups are in financial crisis after Iran cut off their funding several months ago, Palestinian daily Al Quds reported on Sunday.

The reasons for the move are unknown, though it may be related to the internal upheaval in Iran, according to the news outlet.

The Iranian funds paid terrorist salaries and covered the costs of various operational activities, and some institutions affiliated with the terror groups may be forced to shut down due to inability to pay electricity bills.

Several Palestinian factions have been affected, especially in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), the Popular Resistance Committees and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) are all considered to be fully dependent on Iranian patronage.
