BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Health workers in the West Bank will go on strike next week, the federation of healthcare unions said Saturday.

Osama al-Najjar, the head of a healthcare union, told Ma'an that healthcare workers will strike from Feb 4-6 to protest dire work conditions and the late payment of salaries by the Palestinian Authority.

The strike is likely to paralyze medical services in the West Bank.

"The ministry has inaugurated new health services and new departments while existing services continue to suffer from serious shortages in qualified staff," al-Najjar said.

Spokesman for the nursing union Suleiman Turkman said that the PA is imposing severe austerity measures on the health sector, despite promising to exempt the health ministry from cuts to public services.
