    Tens of thousands of Palestinian public employees in the Hamas-governed Gaza Strip are facing a nearly one-third cut in their salaries.

    The move affects up to 58,000 employees in the besieged coastal territory, where poverty is widespread and unemployment rates are some of the highest in the world.

    Activists say the salary cuts intensify the breach between Palestinians in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from Ramallah.
