JewishPress Logo

Female employees at the Palestinian Women’s Affairs Ministry in Ramallah declared a “hunger strike till death” on Tuesday to protest against corruption and harassment.

A statement released by the women said: “The situation is grave as the women have received threats to be shot in their legs.”

Gassan al-Khateeb, spokesman for the Palestinian Authority, responded that “[t]he claims and accusations of those employees about administrative and financial corruption along with physical harassment at the Ministry of Women’s Affairs are not true.”
