Palestinians protest high cost of living

Growing anger as civil servants in occupied West Bank continue to face inordinate delays in salary.

    Food and fuel prices are on the rise, and Palestinians in the occupied West Bank have staged a protest against the high cost of living.

    The government has delayed salary payments for hundreds of thousands of civil servants several times this year, and public anger has been growing.
