Beleaguered Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad announced Thursday his government was doing its utmost to solve the economic crisis in the Palestinian territories.

Fayyad's announcement came amid growing criticism among Palestinians over his government's handling of the crisis, especially in wake of a recent increase in the price of fuel and basic goods.

Over the past few days, Palestinians have taken to the streets in several West Bank cities to protest the high cost of living.
