PA encouraging workers to retire to cover self-inflicted financial losses

Headline: “Al-Damiri: Early pension is optional for a year”

“[PA] Security Forces Spokesman [and General Political Commissioner of the PLO Political and National Guidance Authority] Adnan Al-Damiri emphasized that the early pension law that the Palestinian [PA] government has approved is optional in the first stage, and noted that it gives members of the [PA] Security Forces in the West Bank and Gaza Strip a year to retire voluntarily.
Al-Damiri said in a special statement to [the independent Palestinian news agency] Donia Al-Watan that the law provides several benefits to those who will retire, and that it is not directed against [PA] Security Forces members in the Gaza Strip, but rather includes all Security Forces members in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip…
Al-Damiri noted that those who retire will be eligible to receive 70% of their salary, and that those who do not retire this year will not be eligible for the benefits that the current law provides if they are forced to retire.”
