RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Employees of the Palestinian Authority government will strike for two days this week, in a continuation of protests against delays in salary payments.

The public sector union said Sunday it would suspend work on Wednesday and Thursday. They will then decide on the program for the following week.

Government employees in the West Bank received part of their November salaries last week, but the remainder is still outstanding.

The Western-backed PA has struggled with falling international donations and domestic revenues, and has had to delay payments to its 153,000 public sector workers several times this year.

Since early December, Israel has withheld around $100 million in monthly tax revenue it collects on behalf of the PA as punishment for the UN's acceptance of Palestine as a non-member state.
