BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian Authority will compensate citizens for the damage wrought by a heavy storm last week, the minister of national economy Jawad Naji said on Saturday.

Both private losses and public infrastructure damage will be compensated, he said.

The minister visited some of the worst-hit areas in the Tulkarem and Jenin governorates to survey some of the damage.

In Anabta village, where two women died after they were swept away by floods, local officials highlighted that rainfall far exceeded what the community could cope with.

"Infrastructure suffered serious damage, and a leather factory and several shops were completely flooded," deputy mayor Thabit Omar said.

In Bartaa village, head of the local council Ghassan Qabaha told the minister: "The whole village was flooded in just four minutes."

More than 50 shops and dozens of houses suffered damage, and 12 vehicles were swept away by floods, he said.

The intensions are good but there are not even means to pay salaries for the own emplyees. Where does the minister find the compensation money?

The people of the Netherlands, the EU, and the USA have been providing the "means to pay salaries for PA emplyees," but I think we've all paid enough, particularly given the lack of progress and PA stealings, so THE ARB LEAGUE STATES CAN PAY both: - "the COMPENSATION MONEY" AND - the "means to PA SALARIES" !!
