For the third month in a row, the Palestinian Authority will pay its civil servants only 60 percent of their monthly wages, as a result of Israel withholding tax revenues.
Money woes have also caused problems with paying for fuel for Gaza's power plant.
One sector of Palestinian Arab society doesn;'t have to worry about their paychecks, though: terrorists and their families.
The Palestinian Authority Ministry of Finance announced on Saturday evening its intention to pay the families of martyrs and wounded 100% of their monthly stipends, despite the financial hardship experienced by the PA.
Finance Minister Shukri Bishara said in a press release that he agreed to give the full allowances to families of martyrs and wounded during the next two days.
This is the priority of the "peaceful" Palestinian Authority: paying the families of those who kill Jews is more important than paying their regular workers.
