RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian Authority said Thursday it would be paying the remainder of October salaries to government employees by the end of the day.

Public sector employees received 52 percent of their salaries on Nov. 11. The withheld amount will be available at ATMs on Thursday and from bank counters on Sunday, the ministry of finance said.

The PA has repeatedly failed to pay salaries on time and in full as it faces mounting debts.

The aid-dependent Palestinian economy in the West Bank is undergoing a financial crisis due to a drop in aid from Western backers and wealthy Gulf states, as well as Israeli restrictions on trade.

Where from do the dollars come? Beggars all, watch the fall; call for dollars, louder hollers won't yield more. The watching world has seen it all before. No more. Time to make your own way If you want to celebrate the day You stand "stated".

Give them them the chance to make their own way and they will not any longer require aid donations. A great start to freedom would be to pull down those terrible walls around the Westbank.
