HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority employees in the municipality of Yatta, Hebron suspended work on Sunday in protest against the late payment of salaries, a union said.
Mousa al-Hadar, chairman of Yatta's employees union, told Ma'an that workers in the municipality have not been paid for seven months.
The union will hold a protest Monday in front of the PA finance ministry to demand that they provide Yatta municipality with nearly 9 million shekels ($2.4 million) of overdue budget transfers.
