GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The minister of public works and housing said Tuesday that a Palestinian delegate was in Egypt to discuss several issues, namely the Rafah land crossing that connects the Gaza Strip with Egypt.

Mufeed al-Hasayneh told Ma’an that the cabinet discussed the “worries and concerns of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the wages problem.”

Al-Hasayneh said that the cabinet was preparing a system to pay the salaries of Gaza employees before Ramadan, “as soon as a system is prepared we will announce a date for paying the salaries.”

The minister pointed out that the cabinet also discussed the electricity crisis and the possibility of increasing times of electricity from 8 to 10 hours through increasing the amount of gasoline in the power station in Gaza.

Al-Hasayneh said that the cabinet planned to meet in Gaza, “but Israel would not give the prime minister the permission to move between Gaza and the West Bank.”
