Hamas announced on Wednesday that it would pay salaries to its employees in the Gaza Strip after the Palestinian “national consensus” government rejected calls for paying the wages.

The announcement came amid ongoing tensions between the two parties over the salaries of the Gaza Strip civil servants.

Hamas has more than 40,000 civil servants in the Gaza Strip who haven’t received salaries for several months. Hamas was hoping that the Palestinian government would pay the salaries.
