Bank: orders are up

He explained that the procrastination and the arguments started with the branch manager saying that he had no knowledge about the issue, and we called the main branch in Ramallah, so they said tomorrow you will receive your salaries and then we will renew the cards for you. “

The next day, according to Hammash, I went back to the branch in Bethlehem and found liberated friends, and also prisoners’ families. Then the branch manager told us clearly, that we must withdraw all our money from the accounts and close them, because there are “higher orders.”

He indicated in his speech, that the released prisoners must take steps on the ground against this policy that seeks to punish the released prisoners.
