GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Palestine Monetary Authority said on Saturday that orders have been given to all Gaza banks to open their doors during the 12-hour humanitarian ceasefire that will continue until 8 p.m.

In a statement, the PMA said that banks had been receiving customers since the morning hours.

Banks in Gaza have been closed for the majority of the last 18 days amid the Israeli assault, especially since the ground invasion began last week.
