Staff from the Palestinian prime minister's office went on strike Wednesday, joining a widespread work stoppage by civil servants demanding overdue salaries from the Hamas-led government. About 30 workers joined dozens of other striking civil servants, holding up banners that said, "We want our salaries, we have a right to feed our children." The strike, which began Sept. 2, has been lukewarm in Gaza, a Hamas stronghold, though several thousand security men rampaged in downtown Gaza City on Tuesday to demand their salaries. The Hamas-led government has not been able to pay the salaries of 165,000 civil servants since it came to power in March, giving them small, sporadic stipends instead.
