PA to pay remainder of govt salaries

Nov. 22, 2012 12:03 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 27, 2012 4:07 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian Authority said Thursday it would be paying the remainder of October salaries to government employees by the end of the day.

Public sector employees received 52 percent of their salaries on Nov. 11. The withheld amount will be available at ATMs on Thursday and from bank counters on Sunday, the ministry of finance said.

The PA has repeatedly failed to pay salaries on time and in full as it faces mounting debts.

The aid-dependent Palestinian economy in the West Bank is undergoing a financial crisis due to a drop in aid from Western backers and wealthy Gulf states, as well as Israeli restrictions on trade.
