PA reduces civil servants` salaries to 60%

“The Ministry of Financial Affairs (MFA) Wednesday announced that civil servants will only receive 60% of their salaries for February, as Israel continues to withhold the tax revenues it collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority for the third month in a row.
Those who receive a salary of 2,000 shekels ($500) or less will receive a full salary, said an MFA spokesperson, while those who receive more than 2,000 shekels will only receive 60% of their salary, remaining above the 2,000 shekels limit… Israel has been withholding PA’s tax revenues for two months now, in retaliation to President Mahmoud Abbas’ accession to 20 international treaties, including the International Criminal court (ICC).”
