Gaza public servants will stage on Monday a general strike in protest against the government's continued failure to pay salaries to tens of thousands of employees of former Hamas government.

In a press statement, the committee in charge of defending workers of Gaza government that was previously run by Hamas said the strike will involve all government institutions, ministries and directorates.

Since the political division between Hamas and Fateh began in 2007, Hamas ran a separate government in the Gaza Strip with its own civil service of around 40,000.

During this time, however, the Fateh-led Palestinian Authority continued paying its 70,000 employees in the Gaza Strip, despite the fact that the PA was no longer operative.

Since the unity agreement was signed, it has been unclear who will pay the employees of the former Hamas government.
