Hamas: Gaza banks to re-open Wednesday

June 10, 2014 8:26 A.M. (Updated: June 12, 2014 9:13 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Banks in the Gaza Strip will re-open Wednesday, Hamas political bureau member Moussa Abu Marzouq said Tuesday.

He added that the salary crisis in Gaza would be resolved by the end of the month.

Abu Marzouq said in a meeting with mayors and dignitaries in northern Gaza that banks would re-open for Palestinian Authority employees on Wednesday.

He added that Gaza employees who were hired during the Hamas government rule will receive the salaries in the coming few days.

Correction, June 11: An earlier version of this story said that Abu Marzouq issued a statement with his remarks. In fact, he was quoted during a political meeting with mayors and dignitaries in northern Gaza.
