The gunmen, who had been pardoned by Israel, say that the NIS 1,500 that each one of them receives from the PA is not enough.
Former members of Fatah’s armed wing, Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, demanded Sunday that the Palestinian Authority raise their salaries.
The gunmen, who had been pardoned by Israel, said that the NIS 1,500 that each one of them receives from the PA was not enough.
They threatened to launch protests in the West Bank if the PA government did not increase their salaries.
Muhammad al-Ashkar, a spokesman for the group in Tulkarem, said that he and his friends would stage demonstrations if the PA government did not comply.
He said that the Fatah members were also considering going on hunger-strike to demand an increase in their salaries.
Al-Ashkar pointed out that some 20 Fatah gunmen had four years ago to lay down their weapons in return for a pardon from Israel.

Is not a sacked or retired hit-man more worth than 1.500 Shekel?
That is hardly 400 USD.
The Arab Palestinian dictatorship based in Ramallah is now stripped from cash. Not because the USA and EU have cut down their payments to Arab terrorist cells. But because the Muslim World do not fulfill their obligations.
“Hired killers on hunger strike”.
That would make great headlines in Western Media.
Let the Parliamentarian’s get their acts together, and increase their budgets to “aid” to the “refugees”, “victims” of Israeli “occupation”.
