GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – The union of public sector employees in Gaza on Wednesday threatened to carry out protests without prior notice if the new government doesn’t pay monthly wages to some 50,000 employees hired by Hamas during years of rivalry with Fatah and the Palestinian Authority.

The union’s chief Muhammad Siyam said in a statement that “all options are open and we will defy anybody who deprives us of our daily sustenance.”

The statement urged all employees to join protests to be announced by the union.

The salary itself, added Siyam, isn’t a top priority because the top priority is that the new government and President Mahmoud Abbas recognize the legal status of Gaza employees and pay them simultaneously with other employees in the West Bank.

Siyam demanded in his statement that prime minister, Rami Hamdallah, announce a clear position and a quick solution to the crisis. “Things are escalating and we won’t accept that Gaza employees be classified as ineligible.”

He added, “There is no room for dialogue and half solutions just as there is no room for denial of employees’ rights.”

HAMAS do not have any more funds left. All money in pockets of HAMAS ministers. That's why there is unity government was created. Not for fighting but for salary for Gaza employees. Abbas is not that rich ,to spare 5 million dollars. HAMAS should pay his people.
