U.N. TO FACILITATE HUMANITARIAN PAYMENT FOR CIVIL SERVANTS IN GAZA, THANKS TO GENEROUS QATARI CONTRIBUTION
Following the recent statement by Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, in consultation with the Government of Palestine, the United Nations intends to facilitate a humanitarian payment before the end of the month in Gaza for a number of civil service employees who have not received salaries for some time.
We are grateful to the Government of Qatar and the Emir, His Highness
Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani,
for their generous contribution. We count on the support of all concerned in facilitating this payment, which we hope will contribute to stability in Gaza and the Government of Palestine’s efforts to reintegrate government institutions and the civil service.
