The Palestinian Authority is aggressively pressuring Hamas on behalf of Israel with its latest decision to cut salaries for Gaza-based government employees, the Islamic fundamentalist organization said Saturday.

Hamas placed the bulk of blame on PA President Mahmoud Abbas, saying he is responsible for “denying workers their basic rights” and suspending allocations of funds to “martyrs,” Palestinians who died while carrying out terrorist attacks against Israelis. Hamas also said the coastal enclave’s increasing isolation and lack of basic resources, such as water, power and health services, is primarily Abbas’s fault.
