Al-Hamdallah’s gov’t forces 6,145 Gazan workers into early retirement

6145 workers Gaza early retirement

The Ramallah-based Palestinian government on Tuesday decided that 6,145 workers from Gaza be handed over early-retirement orders against their will.

The government spokesperson Youssef al-Mahmoud said the move is temporary and depends on Hamas efforts to heal the national rift.

Al-Mahmoud added that the only means to end the division episode is to implement Mahmoud Abbas’s vision, dissolve the so-called administrative committee, enable the incumbent government to rule in Gaza, and prepare for national elections.

Al-Mahmoud claimed the government will backtrack on the decision only if Hamas eats humble pie and works on boosting national reconciliation.
