Hamas: Gaza salary crisis a misstep for consensus government

Jan. 24, 2015 7:59 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 25, 2015 7:50 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Hamas movement said Saturday that the Gaza government employee crisis was a serious misstep for the national consensus government.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told Ma'an that the salary crisis was the unity government's responsibility.

Salaries of government employees should never be cut off for any reason, Abu Zuhri said.

He said all Palestinian factions were in agreement against the unity government's failure to pay Hamas government employee paychecks.

Since striking a unity deal with the Fatah-led PLO, Hamas has been demanding the new government pay the salaries of the 50,000 civil servants it recruited after its takeover of Gaza in 2007, who took the jobs of 70,000 Fatah employees.
