GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Gaza banks are experiencing another currency crisis, protesters said Thursday.
Palestinian Authority employees organized a sit-in in front of the Bank of Palestine in Nuseirat to protest the fact that their salaries were distributed in multiple currencies.
"We were surprised today that our salaries were in dollars, (Jordanian) dinars, and shekels which will result in penalties due to the exchange rate," one employee told Ma'an.
