Official: PA to pay public sector salaries this week

Feb. 26, 2013 10:59 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 28, 2013 10:20 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Authority will pay the remainder of January salaries for civil servants on Tuesday and Wednesday, the PA Finance Ministry said.

Last week, public sector workers received a portion of their January wages as an ongoing financial crisis prevents the PA from paying full salaries on time.

The remainder of public sector salaries will be available from banks on Tuesday and Wednesday, the ministry said.

On Monday, Ahmad al-Hilou, director of custom taxes and VAT, told Ma'an that Israel was set to transfer Palestinian tax revenues to the PA.

Al-Hilou said Israel owed the PA around 425 million shekels ($114.7 million) in December tax revenue.

Since November, Israel has withheld Palestinian tax revenue it collects on behalf of the PA, exacerbating the government's financial crisis.
