GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Health syndicates in Gaza organized a sit-in Monday in front of the World Health Organization in protest of not receiving their salaries.

Participants in the sit-in said they have not been paid for three months in a row, and they called for the national unity government to include the Gaza government’s employees with the PA employees and "not to discriminate between employees."

“Job security is a right for every employee,” participants said, demanding their salaries in order to be “equal” to their colleagues in the PA.

Participants held Rami Hamdallah, Palestinian premier, responsible for the health sector’s deterioration, and they called upon all parties who signed the reconciliation agreement to intervene to solve the issue.
