Gaza post 


 , The EU expects to disperse part of its financial commitment to the Palestinian Authority in the coming days or weeks to enable it pay part of its employees' salaries according to Shadi Othman a spokesman for the European Union in Jerusalem.


 He stated that the Palestinian administration is experiencing unprecedented financial challenges, and the EU is keeping a close eye on the issue with the Finance Ministry and Prime Minister.


Othman reaffirmed the EU's strong opposition to Israel's settlement activities in the occupied territories, particularly its recent announcement of 3000 new settlement housing units, and urged the Israeli government not to proceed with the construction of thousands of settlement units in the West Bank and Jerusalem, citing the EU's most recent statement on the subject.
