5,000 More Work Permits for PA


The Immigration Authority has approved another 5,000 work permits for Palestinian Authority residents. The permits will allow PA residents to seek employment in Israel’s construction industry.

The government decided last month to issue the new permits as a gesture to PA Chairman Abbas, who is struggling with growing protests over high prices and high unemployment.
