Palestinians have expressed outrage over the Israeli government's decision to withhold millions of dollars of tax revenues while accelerating settlement construction in occupied areas.

The decision comes after Palestine was this week recognised as a state by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

There are now an estimated 150,000 Palestinian Authority employees across the West Bank and Gaza who are unsure if they will receive their full salaries next week.
