Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki revealed yesterday that a new version of the Palestinian passport will carry the words “State of Palestine” instead of the “Palestinian National Authority”.
The unemployment rate among Palestinians in the labour force aged 15 years-old and above in Palestine was 26% in 2015 (about 336.000 people), according to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statists (PCBS).
Head of the International Relations Council in the blockaded Gaza Strip, Bassem Naim, on Sunday said the latest statements by the UN envoy discredit Israeli claims that reconstruction materials were used for military purposes, urging the UN to work on lifting the siege.
The vindictive Israeli occupation is trying, in vain, to break the will of the Palestinian prisoners, and to make them an economic burden on society after their release from prisons. However, the prisoners insist on improving their conditions academically, intellectually and economically, challenging the occupation's schemes.
